The History of Science Collections of the University of Oklahoma Libraries was established in 1949 with an initial gift from OU alumnus Everette Lee DeGolyer. Current holdings of nearly 100,000 volumes, representing every field and subject area of science, technology and medicine, include complete sets of first editions of major scientists such as Copernicus, Galileo, Newton and Darwin. Volumes range chronologically from Hrabanus Maurus, Opus de universo (1467), to current publications in the history of science. (More info...)
The starting point for exploring how the History of Science Collections may support your research is the Collections' blog at ouhos.org. Unlike many blogs, the posts are revised to keep the information accurate and up-to-date. Click “Research tips” or any other category name in the right margin to view all posts in that category. The posts will appear as an annotated list of current information in that category. Beneath the list of categories are links for other History of Science Collections web pages (“Collections links”), "Guides for Researchers," and a Visit Logistics pdf with handy information for first-time visitors to Oklahoma.
