Electronic Resources

The Library is increasingly purchasing material in electronic format as well as hard copy. At present the electronic resources collection is still in its developmental stage, but already comprises a substantial number of reference works and some journal titles. This development will allow Fellows both on-site and remote access to a selection of the Library’s resources and, by rationalising purchases, will enable the Library both to effect budgetary savings and to offer a much wider range of material.

Athens is an access management system that provides remote access to the online databases and journals subscribed to by the RAI and the British Museum. This service is available for RAI Fellows. To have an Athens account set up, please email the Membership Manager for details.
