Discovering Science Collections Virtually at the Library of Congress
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. The webinar will cover research strategies, library search tools, and online resources to discover these rare and seminal scientific works. (This orientation is not being recorded.)
Individuals requiring accommodations for any of these events are requested to submit a request at least five business days in advance by contacting (202) 707-6362 or ADA@loc.gov.
NOTE: YOU WILL RECEIVE A WEBINAR LINK PRIOR TO THE EVENT.
