News 2/6/09:
In considering the 2010 subscription year, the Geological Society of London has listened with interest to the views of the library community. As a consequence, several significant decisions have been made affecting pricing and availability of the Lyell Collection and the Society's individual journal titles.
Key headlines are as follows:
§  Lyell Collection Complete - 0% price increase (in fact, the price is coming down just a little...).
§  Subscribers to SP Plus, JGS Plus, QJEGH Plus and GEEA Plus will see their subscription price CUT by 5%.
§  All components of the Lyell Collection as well as Petroleum Geoscience will be online-only by default.
§  Any subscriber wishing to retain print may do so on payment of a 5% surcharge.
§  The differentiation between "Current" and "Plus" subscriptions will be dropped - all SP, JGS, QJEGH and GEEA subscribers will receive the same service and be given access to the full archive.
§  Lyell Collection Complete will include three new titles for the 2010 subscription year: Scottish Journal of Geology, Proceedings of the Yorkshire Geological Society and Petroleum Geology Conferences. These will all be included within the standard price, without any increased charges payable.
