## Key quick referencesMacTutor History of Mathematics archive (U. St Andrews, Scotland). An excellent web resource: 28,000 files including 1700 hyperlinked biographies. Entries have references. Mathematics Subject Classification (MSC) codes. Bibliography of Collected Works and Correspondence of Mathematicians, (Cornell U) ## DiversionsSymbolic Sculpture and Mathematics presents the sculptures of John Robinson and examines their links with mathematics and sculpture. From the Centre for the Popularisation of Mathematics. Mathematical Quotations Server
- AMS: American Mathematical Society; includes recent news.
- EMIS The European Mathematical Information Service: information about the European Mathematical Society, projects, news, its members, conferences, publications, etc.
- Euro-Math-Job Vacant academic positions in the European departments of mathematics and statistics.
## Preprints/ePrints & PublishingThese can be excellent sources for material — although many items, especially journal articles, will be available directly from our major databases [MathSciNet, Zentralblatt, & Scopus] in full-text. Mathematics ArXiv is an ongoing resource (over 50,000 items). If it is not successful, try the AMS Directory of Preprint Servers, which includes other broad mathematical preprint servers,
