Michael McKimm writes: Since then, the number of titles and publishers in the Scheme has risen steadily. Fellows now enjoy full-text access to over 80 journals, covering fields from engineering and petroleum geology to palaeontology and volcanology. Library staff are continuing to negotiate with publishers – recently adding the Irish Journal of Earth Sciences and the Journal of Geology. Recent Special Issues are also listed in our Virtual Library, and a selection highlighted in the Society’s fortnightly e-newsletter.

Over 1000 Fellows are currently signed up to receive up-to-date research at the click of a mouse, without having to leave home or office. Fellows from as far afield as Nigeria, Vietnam, Nicaragua, Kyrgyzstan and the Faroe Islands are regularly logging in - as well as large numbers from Europe, North America and Australia. Mark Ruse (Perth, Australia) says: “The e-journal service adds justification to paying the Society fees, when I have such little access to the physical Library”.
  • STOP PRESS! Journal of Petrology also added. If you have not already signed up to this major and growing benefit of Society membership, visit or contact Eileen Jamieson in the Library.
