The World History of Science Online (www.dhst-whso.org) is an international bibliographical project that is currently headed by Prof. Stephen Weldon. This resource supplements the annual Isis Bibliography by indexing the burgeoning online resources in our field. The WHSO project has recently launched a new browsing feature that contains data collected by two OU graduate students, Margaret Gaida and Amy Rodgers. These two students worked with Dr. Weldon over the summer of 2011 to collect information about scholarly websites around the globe devoted to history of science, technology, and medicine. The WHSO website is hosted by the University of Melbourne’s e-Scholarship Research Centre in Australia, and it allows users to search for web-based resources by keyword. It includes information about the languages supported, the institutions and individuals who have created the different resources, and the types of materials available (ranging from full text archives to bibliographical lists). It also explains access information where relevant. Weldon expects to continue adding to this resource yearly with the help of OU’s graduate students as well as volunteers worldwide.
