Approach: E-GeoNews is a free e-mail-based newsletter. It consists of short articles that sometimes point to longer Web articles. It is sent to a mailing list of people who have signed up to receive news of the IGWS. It is also sent to Indiana University officials, other state geological surveys, and university departments of geology in the U.S. and Canada.
Products: The e-mail newsletter is produced monthly, with extra issues as needed.
Benefits: The newsletter benefits the public by making available information about the geology of the state, as well as publicizing events, new publications, and new research projects. The interested citizen is driven to visit the IGWS website to make use of the freely available information there, and to purchase publications and data.
