Run in collaboration by CERN, DESY, Fermilab, IHEP, IN2P3, and SLAC, INSPIRE has been serving the scientific community for almost 50 years. Previously known as SPIRES, it was the first website outside Europe and the first database on the web. Close interaction with the user community and with arXiv, ADS, HEPData, ORCID, PDG and publishers is the backbone of INSPIRE’s evolution.
