HEP (SPIRES-SLAC) is a joint project of SLAC and DESY Libraries, with additional input from CERN, Fermilab, ITEP, Kyoto U., and several other institutions. The database covers preprints and high-energy physics articles published since 1975. It was organized and nurtured for two decades by Louise Addis (now retired). SLAC Library not only collects the bibliographic data, but also produces postscript versions (since 1993) of e-prints posted to various high-energy physics archives (bulletin-boards). Both the database maintenance and the postscript processing are funded solely by SLAC, through the Library budget.

The main caretaker and the coordinator of the HEP-database input is R. Gex. Main inputers are G. Jurickovich and A. Zapata. Also participating in the project are R. Chandler (input), P. Clancey (input, programming), H. Galic (input, output), and G. Row (input). The software that enables the access to the HEP database via World Wide Web is written by G. Crane. We value your feedback. Please send corrections/comments to: library@slac.stanford.edu

The postscript processing of e-prints is done by G. Siddiqui at SLAC, with additional help from DESY Library. Coordinator is H. Galic. You can contact us by writing to: ppf@libnext.slac.stanford.edu . Pointers to the postscript files can be found in the HEP database. The files are also available on the SLAC's anonymous ftp server (preprint.slac.stanford.edu) and the Los Alamos e-print server. The auto-TeXing program is written by P. Mende (Brown U.).
