Additionally, the building is also used for publication and file storage, equipment maintenance and storage, and fabrication of equipment.

OIGS serves as the principal office site for several IGS staff, but staff members are not always onsite or available to assist visitors. Any person wanting to visit and utilize the OIGS facility must prearrange their visit with IGS to ensure a staff member will be available to assist. Sampling must adhere to established IGS sample policy. Facility operating hours are 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
