The "Particle Physics Reference Library" is now available on everybody’s desktop

A virtual book presentation with the editors and authors will take place on 24 November to celebrate the full release of the online library


Since the publication of the announcement “eBooks for all!” this summer, all volumes of the “Particle Physics Reference Library”, edited by Herwig Schopper, Chris Fabjan and Steve Myers, have been published. The reference library is a joint CERN-Springer initiative that provides revised and updated contributions based on previously published material in the well-known Landolt-Boernstein series on particle physics, detectors and accelerators (volumes 21A, B1, B2, C). Central to this new initiative is that the Particle Physics Reference Library is released in open access.

Readers worldwide have embraced the possibility to freely use the material. 50,000 chapter downloads have been recorded across the three volumes during the few weeks the books have been out.

Take a peek at the books before attending the virtual book presentation at 4 p.m. on 24 November 2020, when some of the editors and the chapter authors will meet the readers for an exchange and discussion – this time, you’ll have to bring your own coffee and cakes!

You can find more information on the event on Indico.
