A message from Travis Brooks of the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center:

We are happy to announce that SPIRES (, the 
venerable and long-serving information system for High-Energy-Physics, is 
now being replaced by INSPIRE (

INSPIRE is jointly developed by CERN, DESY, Fermilab and SLAC, and builds 
on four decades of hand-curated SPIRES content and Invenio Digital Library 
software. It offers faster and smarter searches, detailed results, direct 
access to figures, co-cited articles and full-text searches. Many more 
features will be released in the next few months, in partnership with arXiv, 
ADS and leading publishers in the field.

You can preview the beta version of INSPIRE at 

More details on INSPIRE are available

Best regards from the INSPIRE directors:

American Mathematical Society Announces New Version of MathSciNet

Hi everyone,

Our friends at the American Mathematical Society have announced a new version of MathSciNet.  All should enjoy the incorporation of MathJax and the efforts to use DOI’s (digital object identifiers) for books and book chapters.  As our library becomes more digital, this will only make mathematical literature research all the more efficient.  Kudos to the AMS!

“Newest Release of MathSciNet

The American Mathematical Society is pleased to announce the latest version of MathScinet. The new release includes the following enhancements and features:

· Improved display of mathematics using MathJax, an open source JavaScript display engine for mathematics that works in all modern browsers (

· Direct links to books, book chapters, and series using DOIs registered by publishers

· Bibliographic entries and direct links for Ph.D. theses in mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics from the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses database
