An Exhibit in the Department of Special Collections
976 Memorial Library
Through December 3, 2021
Exploring the history of any one scientific field at UW-Madison would be a daunting prospect; much more so teaching and research across the sciences here over some 170 years. The current exhibit in Special Collections, “Science at UW-Madison: Sources for its History,” focuses instead on the variety of sources, from University Archives and elsewhere, that can illuminate such a broad subject.
The exhibit highlights:
And there are many more stories to be told and discoveries to be made — in paper files, online sources, oral histories, photograph collections and other media as preserved in University Archives, Special Collections, and elsewhere; in materials made widely available through UW Digitized Collections; in stories in campus publications and news; as well as in the published record of scientific research held in campus libraries or made available online. Through this exhibit we hope to encourage further exploration of the wide array of relevant sources.
The exhibit is open this summer Monday-Friday 1-4 PM on the 9th floor of Memorial Library. We anticipate longer open hours in fall semester 2021. For more on building hours and access, see Summer 2021 Updates at Memorial Library.
