If you already have access to OnePetro via a work or personal account, here are a few helpful hints:

If you already have corporate/institutional access with OnePetro through your current job, you will already have access to all SNAME content by virtue of your current subscription. However...

To ensure permanent access to your SNAME conference proceedings, always redeem your proceedings codes!  If you leave your current job, you can update the email address on your OnePetro account and your access to these proceedings will remain with your account.  

If you already have an individual subscription or account with OnePetro, please call or email OnePetro directly and ask if you can verify your SNAME membership via your existing account. We still recommend you redeem any proceedings codes in order to receive access to that content without it counting against your individual subscription limit.
