Can I visit a USGS office?

Very few USGS offices are set up to accommodate visitors. Before stopping by a USGS office, you should check their website or call ahead to make sure that visitors are welcome. There are USGS offices in each state.

Members of the public are welcome to use libraries that are located at some USGS offices, but materials can only be checked out through Interlibrary Loan. 

Please note that most of our offices are involved in very specific research, so they do not have specialists available in all science topics.
