Walk-in visitors can find parking in a public parking deck located about 1 block south of the Archdale Building on Salisbury Street. There is also metered parking on Salisbury Street, and unmetered parking north of Peace Street. Our map and publication sales facility is located on the 5th floor of the Archdale Building, Suite 527.
Out-of-Print publications may be examined in the NCGS Archdale Building office in Raleigh. Most publications can also be obtained by interlibrary loan from the State Library. Some out-of-print publications have been scanned and are available as Adobe PDF files.
The NCGS will photocopy out-of-print publications (or portions of the publications) as a convenience to clients, for a modest charge. Please make arrangements with our publication sales staff if you are interested in obtaining an out-of-print publication at: Michael.Medina@ncdenr.gov.

Theses and Dissertations
Theses and dissertations are held in the NCGS office which most closely matches the area of responsibility (Coastal Plain, Piedmont, or Mountains) of the thesis or dissertation. The North Carolina Geological Survey maintains lists of theses and dissertations in its holdings (see Open-file report 90-2). Also available are theses and dissertations by county, currently held in the NCGS main office. For a list of holdings for the Coastal Plain or Asheville offices contact these offices.
