International Polar Year Publications Database

The International Polar Year Publications Database (IPYPD) is now available.

The IPYPD will attempt to identify and describe all publications that result from, or are about, the International Polar Year (IPY) 2007-2008 and the three previous IPYs. The IPYPD currently describes 60 publications. This number is expected to grow to approximately 20,000 publications ten years from now.

The IPYPD will be updated four times per year. The records in the IPYPD contain citations, detailed subject and geographic indexing terms, abstracts, and, in most cases, links to the online full text of the publications.

The IPYPD has been created by the Arctic Science and Technology Information System (ASTIS), the Cold Regions Bibliography Project (CRBP), the Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI) Library, the Discovery and Access of Historic Literature of the IPYs (DAHLI) project and National Information Services Corporation (NISC). Other polar bibliographic databases and libraries are welcome to contribute.

For additional details, please see the "About" tab on the IPYPD website.

Cold Regions Calendar of Events

The Cold Regions Calendar of Events lists upcoming symposia through mid-2013.
Please contact us if you would like to submit a meeting announcement. Note: The Cold Regions Calendar of Events is not currently being updated due to a hiatus in the Cold Regions Bibliography Project.

Database Update

As of September 2011, the Antarctic Bibliography contains over 91,100 references and the Bibliography on Cold Regions Science and Technology has surpassed 245,900 references.

 About the Cold Regions Bibliography Project

The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) continued the Antarctic Bibliography and the Bibliography on Cold Regions Science and Technology as part of the Cold Regions Bibliography Project from 2000 through September 2011. These bibliographies provide coverage of:

- Antarctic research and exploration
- Cold Regions engineering and physical science information

AGI compiled the Cold Regions Bibliography based on sources provided by U.S. and overseas scientists, the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and libraries and polar and research institutions worldwide.

In addition, through a cooperative agreement with AGI, the Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI) provided information on the Antarctic materials housed in the SPRI library at the University of Cambridge.

The Cold Regions Bibliography Project was supported by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory under NSF Grant No. OPP-0440772.
