TRIAL: Lyell Collection - Geological Society of London

We have a trial of the Geological Society of London's Lyell Collection until 30th June 2008. The Lyell Collection comprises two journals:

Journal of the Geological Society, from Vol. 1 (1845) onwards
Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology, from Vol. 1 (1967) onwards

and three book series:

Special Publications, from Vol. 1 (1964) onwards
Engineering Geology Special Publications, from Vol. 2 (1986) onwards
Geological Society Memoirs, from Vol. 1 (1958) onwards

We already have access to the journals through our subscriptions, but we are considering upgrading our subscription to the full Lyell Collection and want to find out the level of demand for the book series.

To access this trial go to
http://www.lyellcollection.org/. Off-campus users should use the Windows Terminal Service, though in the event of a subscription we would set up off-campus access via EZproxy as usual.

After trying the Lyell Collection, please leave a comment - particularly about which (if any) of the book series are important to you.

The Special Publication series is very useful - many of these are interdisciplinary, extending to e.g. regional studies, geomorphology, palaeoanthropology, oceanography.
