Enhanced searches now available on history of physics Oral History Interviews
Staff at the Niels Bohr Library & Archives (American Institute of Physics) have just added an important new search feature to AIP's online oral histories with physicists, astronomers, and other physical scientists. Users can now search for any word they wish to find across all of the online transcripts. This enables researchers to more easily find interviews that pertain to their area of research. For example, someone researching the "atomic bomb" will find 158 interviews (out of about 770 online) that mention this term somewhere in the interview. Similarly, there are 37 hits for "star wars," and six for “Higgs.” The search results are sorted by relevance, so interviews with more occurrences of the search term will appear at the top of the search results.
Staff continue to add transcripts to the website on a regular basis and have added audio clips for Bryce S. DeWitt, John Bardeen, Richard Garwin, and others. Of note—the Richard Feynman interview, added to the online collection in March, has quickly become the most popular of all our online oral histories.
