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 those that are available online. Instruction will cover research strategies, library search tools, and online resources to discover these rare and seminal scientific works.
This webinar event will be held on the third Tuesday of every other month. Because this session will not be recorded, if you cannot make the September 21st date keep an eye out for our next upcoming session on November 16.
For more information or questions about this orientation or future orientations please use our Science Ask –a- Librarian Service.
We hope that you can join us virtually on September 21!
