CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, has opened its scientific multimedia collections to searches by the Energy Department’s ScienceCinema. The ScienceCinema website performs searches of the audio in a database of audio and video presentations; results link directly to multimedia files. Aside from the CERN works, the content is from the U.S. Energy Department and its national laboratories. (For more information, see our previous blog post: ScienceCinema: DOE Multimedia Search, 9 February 2011.)
The CERN materials are audio files only at this point. They include recordings for both general and expert audiences interested in particle physics research. To limit a ScienceCinema search to CERN content only, choose theBibliographic Search option and select the button for CERN under ‘Media Source’ in the lower right corner.
