Location: The Publications Office is located on the 1st floor, Room 103, of the Geological Survey of Alabama and State Oil and Gas Board, building (Walter B. Jones Hall) at 420 Hackberry Lane on the campus of the University of Alabama.

Visitor Parking and Parking Permits: Two 30-minute visitor spaces are designated in the parking lot behind the GSA/OGB building (Walter B. Jones Hall). Visitor hang tags are available in the Publications Office ($4.00, check or money order) that will allow parking in spaces other than the designated time-limit visitor spaces; however, nearby parking spaces are difficult to find during regular University of Alabama semesters.

Visitors to GSA/OGB may find it more convenient to park in the nearby Campus Drive parking deck ( At the parking deck, ($5, $1 bills or quarters) is due upon entry with no need for a hang tag and no time limit. Upon payment at the deck entrance, a receipt will print which should be displayed on the vehicle dash. For more information regarding visitor parking on the campus of the University of Alabama, go to

Coming Soon:The surface lot surrounding the Campus Drive Parking Deck will soon become a “Pay by Plate” parking lot (anticipated by January 2015). Visitors will be able to park and register their license plate at a kiosk. The first 30 minutes will be free; the first hour, $1; and each hour thereafter $2.00 per hour. A phone app will also be available to allow paying for additional time/fee. (Visitors may still park in the deck for any amount of time for $5.00 on entry.)
