CERN Yellow Reports

The CERN Yellow Report series was started in 1955. It provided a medium for communicating the work done at CERN where publication in a journal was not appropriate. The yellow report series includes the proceedings of schools and of workshops having a large impact on the future of CERN, the series also includes reports on detectors and technical papers from individual CERN divisions.

DOE Data Explorer
The DOE Data Explorer (DDE) is an information tool to help you locate DOE's collections of data and non-text information and, at the same time, retrieve individual datasets within some of those collections. It includes collection citations prepared by the Office of Scientific and Technical Information, as well as records for individual datasets submitted from DOE Data Centers and other organizations.


Electronic Telegrams
Fermilab employees who are interested in an e-mail subscription to the International Astronomical Union’s Astronomical Telegrams may request to be added to the Library’s subscription at no charge. Subscribers receive about 5 to 10 e-mails weekly of IAU Circulars giving information about astronomical phenomena requiring prompt dissemination, particularly the discovery and follow-up of novae, supernovae and comets.
