About SPIRES and the HEP Database

The SPIRES-HEP database has been run by the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center(SLAC) since the late 1960's as a database of particle physics literature. SLAC also collaborates with other physics institutions around the world on SPIRES. In 1991 it became the first web-site in North America and now attracts around 50,000 searches per day from particle physicists.

SPIRES HEP was a joint project of SLAC, DESY & FNAL as well as the worldwide HEP community.
It was superseeded by INSPIRE
