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.

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 November 16!

  1. I have a vision problem an was wondering if you have audio versions of what you offer. I can read, but miss a lot of important information. Can you help?

    • Hi Beth! The slides used in these virtual sessions are more for illustrative purposes rather than informational. We are reaching out to our ADA office to find out what else we can do to assist you.
