The Library of Congress has robust collections covering the history of science and technology. The collections include 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 readers can use 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 15!
