In summary, the conversation discusses the search for online sources of papers by renowned scientists such as Einstein, Lorentz, and Planck. The suggestion is made to check the freeweb of science for links to different journals, but it is uncertain if they are free. The conversation also mentions the possibility of requesting papers from a university. Specific sources for Einstein's book RELATIVITY and his paper on the influence of gravitation on the propagation of light are provided, along with a recommendation to check the education section on a forum for more resources. The forum also offers translated versions of 115 of Euler's papers written in LaTex.
