Published material dating back to 1893 from the archives of The Australasian Institute of Mining & Metallurgy (The AusIMM) will now be incorporated into the OneMine global online mining and minerals library.
The agreement allows all AusIMM members free access to OneMine’s already comprehensive online collection of documents and research papers.
AusIMM chief executive Michael Catchpole explains that the arrangement between the Institute and OneMine gives the 11,000 members of the AusIMM unlimited online access to the entire database of technical papers.
OneMine is a premier global mining and minerals database consisting of full-text articles and peer-reviewed journals. AusIMM members will now have access to a huge resource of more than 75,000 online and searchable documents.
OneMine was created in 2007 as a collaborative effort between a number of mining and minerals societies to develop a searchable database of industry research and information. The OneMine website includes technical documents, conference papers, articles, pre-prints and late papers.
The OneMine web portal allows mining and minerals professionals, complete access to many indexed publications that have only been available in limited print form.
As part of the agreement, over 10,000 AusIMM papers will be added to this global database over the coming months. The arrangement further enhances the Institute’s strong focus on promoting professional excellence within the sector and supporting the development, knowledge and skills of AusIMM members, adds Mr Catchpole.
The AusIMM joins the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration (SME), AIME (American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical and Petroleum Engineers), IMMS (International Marine Minerals Society) and the SAIMM (South African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy) in contributing to this unique and important global resource for mining and minerals professionals.
