The Washington Geological Survey (WGS), formerly known as the Washington Division of Geology and Earth Resources (WDGER) has replaced their old webpage to https://www.dnr.wa.gov/geology.
The WGS webpage provides links to all WGS publications and GIS data relating to Washington geology and geological hazards. The WGS is also home to the Washington Geological Library, found at https://www.dnr.wa.gov/programs-and-services/geology/washington-geology-library. Publications may be searched either through the Publication Catalog at https://www.dnr.wa.gov/programs-and-services/geology/publications-and-data/washington-geologic-survey-publications-catalog, the Library Catalog at http://d92019.eos-intl.net/D92019/OPAC/Index.aspx or through the old Publications List at https://www.dnr.wa.gov/publications/ger_publications_list.pdf?b40os8.
The WGS has also revamped the Geologic Information Portal (https://www.dnr.wa.gov/geologyportal), a mapping application that allows you to view, identify, and query all WGS geology data.
Portal help can be found here: https://www.dnr.wa.gov/portal-help.
GIS data can be downloaded directly either from the portal or the GIS Data & Databases page at https://www.dnr.wa.gov/programs-and-services/geology/publications-and-data/gis-data-and-databases.
The WGS has a blog called Washington State Geology News, found at http://washingtonstategeology.wordpress.com/.
