The ISRM Digital Library was launched during the New Delhi 2011 International Symposium|
The main aim of the ISRM digital library is to contain all the papers published in the ISRM Congresses and sponsored Symposia, thus giving them a greater visibility and making them available to all the rock mechanics professionals.
The ISRM digital library is part of OnePetro, a large online library managed by the Society of Petroleum Engineers. ISRM individual members registered on the ISRM website are allowed to download, at no cost, up to 100 papers per year from the ISRM conferences, and ISRM corporate members can download 250 papers.
To register on the OnePetro website (www.onepetro.org) as an ISRM member, the only necessary information is the username and the password used to access the members’ area of the ISRM website. Non-members can purchase the ISRM papers online.
The ISRM digital library has now 2,000 papers published in nine conferences, and these numbers are expected to double in the next six months.
