We're eager for students to join us in doing hands-on research in the history of science, technology, and medicine, by opening up our lab: the 94,000+ volume History of Science Collections, on the 5th floor of Bizzell Library.
Now, working in our lab might seem more like exploring an attic with 94,000 treasure chests ready to open at your command, so we realize that how to get started might seem as perplexing as it is exciting. As a first step, we invite you to visit the informal Undergrad Exhibit series we're designing for display in the Roller Reading Room. You can get a quick overview if you have a few minutes to browse, or, if you have a bit more time, you're welcome to pull up a comfy chair and dig a bit deeper into the exhibit right then and there.
Our first Undergrad Exhibit is "The Children's Darwin" -- and for this display and for each one going forward a special feature is that we'll provide space for you to share your thoughts -- in a comment book right there in the Roller Reading Room and online at this blog, right below. We'd love to have you visit, and become partners with us in making history!
