Menu: About the Project

About this Website
The website was constructed by faculty, staff, and student research assistants in the Office for History of Science and Technology and the Library at the University of California, Berkeley.

The History of Science & Technology Sources database updates and expands Rider's and Lowood's Guide to Sources in Northern California for History of Science and Technology published by the Office for History of Science and Technology in 1985. The initial phase of the project includes descriptions of primary source material in The Bancroft Library on the Berkeley campus; in the near future we expect to add holdings of the University Archives and the Berkeley Campus Office for History of Science and Technology and the Water Resources Center Archives. Periodically, and at least annually, we will update the database as new collections are acquired or catalogued.

As time and funding permit, we will add other repositories listed in the 1985 publication beginning with collections belonging to the northern campuses of the University of California, the National Laboratories, and Stanford University.
