Athens passwords are not available to Corporate Patrons at present.

Athens authentication is a means of identifying who is entitled to access a resource. The presence of Athens login fields does not necessarily indicate that a resource is available to Fellows of the Geological Society. Check the E-journals pages, E-books pages or the Library catalogue to find details of individual journals and books.

Access to online resources is covered by copyright law and the Terms and Conditions of the publisher and online access provider. Systematic downloading of articles or chapters and sharing login details are not allowed.

Breaching these regulations could result in the loss of access for the entire Society and anyone knowingly doing so will have their User Accounts withdrawn.
