Interested in history of science and technology collections at the Library of Congress? Come to our Discovering Science Collections Virtually at the Library of Congress Webinar on January 19, from 2-3 PM EST!

The Library of Congress collections are robust in both the history of science and the history of technology. Both collections comprise two major elements: the seminal works of science and technology themselves and historiographies on notable scientific and technological works. Science subject specialists will provide an overview of these collections, with an emphasis on collections available online. Instruction will cover research strategies, library search tools, and online resources to discover these rare and seminal scientific works. You’ll be able to send chats throughout the presentation; we love it when you bring your questions with you!
