ScienceDirect platform

We are delighted to announce a major expansion of the e-books and e-journals available to Fellows on the ScienceDirect platform. 

To access these new resources, please login at using your OpenAthens details. We recommend selecting from the subject filters (which include Earth and Planetary Sciences, Energy, Engineering, and Environmental Sciences) or doing a keyword search to find material most relevant to you.

The links below will take you to the login pages for each e-book. The majority of the e-books are accessed using the VLeBooks platform. To login choose OpenAthens and find The Geological Society in the list of institutions. Further information on using the VLeBooks platform can be found at Instructions for accessing e-books via the VLeBooks platform

The links to ScienceDirect titles (indicated in brackets) will take you directly to the OpenAthens login page.
