News from Nobelprize.org

March 27, 2009

Newsletter subscribers will already be aware that Nobelprize.org is, to put it mildly, a big site. Our 38,000,000 visitors a year find themselves confronted with the archive of materials covering over a hundred years of Nobel Prizes in all five disciplines, plus forty years of the Prize in Economic Sciences, plus educational productions in all subjects, plus a huge video library and writings on everything from Alfred Nobel to the menus at the Nobel Banquet … you get the picture.

This newsletter highlights material on the site that you might not have encountered before. While much of our content can be accessed by clicking the links on the right hand menu of the page dedicated to each individual Nobel Prize (for example, pages such as that describing the first Prize ever, awarded to Wilhelm Röntgen in 1901), the pages below are generally found by following some of the many other navigational cues on the site.

So we hope you enjoy the random selection that follows, and that it gives you a taste for further exploration of some of the less charted regions of Nobelprize.org; who knows what hidden gems you might discover. You can also, as I frequently do, use the search box at the top right of every page to help you find what you're looking for!
