This looks like a fugitive publication to me. A patron was asking
whether or not we had USGS Professional Paper 1700, Stratigraphic
studies in southwestern Montana and adjacent Idaho–lower Tertiary
Anaconda Conglomerate and Mesoproterozoic Gunsight Formation. I was
surprised to find that this 2005 publication was unavailable. It’s part
of an established series, it’s an agency that GPO works with
frequently–so it seems like a clear in-scope depository item to me.
It’s strange what falls through the cracks.

Here’s the information from the USGS Publications Warehouse:
http://pubs.er.usgs.gov/publication/pp1700

Why wasn’t this printed and distributed, or why is it still not
available digitally? Can depositories get access to this?
