IAH-BGID Free Book Scheme 2018

The IAH BGID is pleased to announce the launch of its free book scheme for 2018.  The aim of this scheme is to increase access to hydrogeological books for IAH members in Africa where it is difficult to obtain reference books, or reliably access the web.  We had similar schemes in previous years which proved highly successful.

We are currently look for volunteers to help manage the scheme.  Consistently one of the more rewarding activities BGID carries out!

Find out more about the book scheme here.
