The Kansas Geological Society (KGS) is composed of geological professionals from across the country. The Society hosts many educational lectures and social functions and maintains a library of geological data.
A NOTE REGARDING LIBRARY HOURS:
Due to issues with the AC system in the building, hours of operation will be limited and quite variable in the short-term. We recommend calling before any visit to the Library, and want to remind users that orders may not be completed the same day they are sent.
Until the AC system is repaired, the Library will close no later than 12 noon daily.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

Robert F. Walters Digital Geological Library
The Walters Digital Library is now being housed on a new server. This has caused some issues with accessing WDL with Internet Explorer, which we are aware of and are working on. For the time being, please use Firefox, Chrome, Safari (on Mac) or Microsoft Edge as your web browser when using WDL. As soon as the issues with Internet Explorer are addressed, we will let you know. Thank you for your patience, and thank you for being members of the Digital Library.
*** ATTENTION ***
There have been inquiries about information that has been released by the KCC that is not available on WDL. Please understand that we do not receive the files directly from the KCC; rather, they are processed by the Survey first to put them in a format that our database can display. Those files are then placed in a "pool" of logs for us to link to their appropriate APIs. We cannot upload what we haven't received, but as soon as we do receive them they are linked and made available to you.
We are constantly endeavoring to expedite and streamline this process, but know that as soon as we get the data, you get the data. Thank you for your patience.
Please be our guest!
You can log into the Robert F. Walters Digital Geological Library by using "guest" as a username and "guest" as a password. This will allow you to see the digital and paper database of the Kansas Geological Society. If you want to order from us, just give us a call.
LAS Files Now Available on Walters Digital Library. Over 14,000 LAS files have been added to the database.

The Library has regained large-format printing capabilities with the acquisition of a Canon PRO-4000S plotter. So if you have a map or cross section that needs reproducing, stop on by!
08/16/2018: Strip logs
The Clark Roach donation of strip logs is now in the files at the library thanks to the hard work & donated time of Larry Friend. We have tons of good information only available here in the library. Maybe that piece of your puzzle is here.
06/01/2018: East RangeScanning of Plotted Geologist Reports & Electric Logs is finished!
