Museum Publications

A critical component of scientific and historical inquiry is publication of research results. The New York State Museum has published research results since its origination as the New York State Geological and Natural History Survey in 1836. Three of our series are currently available free on-line. Individual volumes of the New York State Museum Bulletin, Record, and Cultural Resources Survey series can be accessed for downloads as pdf files by clicking on the links below. A complete listing of Museum staff publications in journals, books, magazines and other outlets can be accessed by clicking on the Staff Publications link. Many of these publications can be accessed on by clicking on DOI or URL, which link to publishers' websites, or by clicking on Google Scholar, which provides links to copies when available.
