Redesigned SPIE Digital Library

Here are some of the new SPIE Digital Library features:

  • As a new edition to the conference papers SPIE presents conference presentations, videos containing the audio and slides for most new presentations. Many of them also include full-text papers.
  • You may create a free personal account that allows you to save citations and sign up for different types of e-mail alerts.
  • The mobile version of the website has been redesigned. You may access your institution’s subscription from your personal computer at home or your mobile device. Simply sign into your personal account while on your organization’s network (once every 90 days) and you will have full off-site access.
