Library Guide

The LENR-CANR library consists of a bibliography of over 4,500 item, and over 1,000 full text papers and books. The bibliography was compiled by Dieter Britz, Edmund Storms and Jed Rothwell. The Summary screen appears on lower portion of the library screen. You can escape the WordPress borders and have the index fill the whole screen by selecting the summary index in a stand-alone window.

Click on the 🔎 on the left to see a detailed description of the document. Papers and books available for download have the word OPEN in the right column. Papers that included in a book are marked “OPEN and go to Acrobat page . . .”

To see full details for every item on the screen, select Detailed record index.

The Summary and Detail screens shows all items in the bibliography. You may wish to see only the items available for download. Click on the Most Recent papers for that. The papers are listed with the most recently uploaded papers first. Click on the First Author heading to list them alphabetically by author.

How to Search for Papers

In the boxes at the top of the screen, search for author, title, or “search all” which includes the year, authors, title, publication abstract and keywords. You can enter a partial name, such as “fleisch” for “Fleischmann.”

The “Quick search” box, on the top left above the table, also finds text in all fields:

You can use “Quick search” by itself, or you can use it to narrow down a search from the top of the screen. For example, when you search for “Fleischmann” and “calorimetry,” 8 papers are found. You can narrow this down by looking for “letters” in the “Quick search” box:

This finds 2 papers, even though only the second paper has the word “letters” in the title shown on the screen. Click on the 🔎 for the first paper and you see the detailed description includes “letters” in “Physics Letters A.”
