PROLA is The American Physical Society’s Physical Review Online Archive. The APS has an agreement with the Library of Congress establishing a repository of all PROLA material. In addition, a PROLA mirror has been hosted at Cornell University library since May 2001. The complete archive consists of all of Physical Review back to 1893, all of Physical Review Letters back to 1958, and all of Reviews of Modern Physics back to 1929. The majority of the collection consists of scanned images of the printed journals available as either GIF images or as PDF files. Portions of the 1995 and 1996 content and all content thereafter, however, consist of PDF files that are produced directly as part of the APS paper printing process.
