Media & Communications Office


Part of Brookhaven's External Affairs & Stakeholder Relations Office, the Media & Communications Office provides information about Brookhaven National Laboratory to internal and external audiences through numerous communications vehicles. Our staff promotes Brookhaven’s international reputation as a center for scientific excellence and innovation. We also publicize information about Laboratory events, policies and procedures.

News Releases

Media and Communications prepares all of the news releases on the Laboratory’s science discoveries, announcements, events, and awards. Releases from 1995 to the present are archived on this website and are searchable by keyword. Laboratory news releases are available in syndicated RSS format.


We publish the Laboratory’s weekly e-news summary Brookhaven This Week; the biweekly web-based Monday Memo, which contains news from the Laboratory Director and administrators, and is e-mailed to the internal Lab community; and various brochures and fact sheets which are available online.

Photography and Graphic Design

Media and Communications provides photography, video, and graphic design for the Laboratory via the Production Services group. To place an order for these services, click here. We also maintain WBNL, which features selected Brookhaven videos available in a streaming media format.

E-mail News Service

Employees, users and the external community can receive the latest Brookhaven news, delivered to their computers via the BNL-ANNOUNCE mailing list. You may subscribe to this service online. See BNL-ANNOUNCE archives.
