History of Physics on the World Wide Web

The AIP Center for History of Physics is proceeding to mount a home page on the World Wide Web as an entry point for information on the field (including astronomy, geophysics, etc.). Features include:

  • Exhibits of photos, with quotes and other points of interest, plus links to many other exhibits on the Web. A special feature is a set of pages based on the AIP Center's highly-regarded traveling exhibit Einstein: Image and Impact.
  • News about history of physics and allied sciences, including recent issues of this AIP History of Physics Newsletter, including in particular our bibliographies. Links point to other newsletters and upcoming meetings sponsored by history committees in scientific societies, etc.
  • Information Sources, beginning with the Center and the holdings of its Niels Bohr Library -- such as selected oral history interviews (also available on AIP's gopher) and photographs in the Emilio Segrè Visual Archives. A rapidly growing set of links will point to many other archives and general history of science information sources.

... And more. This service will grow rapidly; we recommend checking every few months for new materials. Point your Web browser to:
