[News logo]Basser Library goes on-line

The Basser Library, the only specialist library for the study of the history of Australian science, has made a number of finding aids to its manuscript collections available via the Internet. 115 such aids, describing the records of individual scientists such as A.C.D Rivett, F.J. Fenner, and D.F. Martyn and scientific societies including the Geological Society of Australia and the Australian Institute of Physics, can now be accessed by researchers around the world.

These materials were processed with the assistance of the Australian Science Archives Project and are available in plain text format through its ASAPWeb facility. In addition, these finding aids are linked to Bright SPARCS, ASAP's new on-line resource for the history of Australian science and technology.

Access is by: Anonymous FTP to coombs.anu.edu.au, in the directory "/coombspapers/otherarchives/australian-sci-archives/basser-libr-collection"; Gopher to Coombsquest on coombs.anu.edu.au, under "Special Projects" and then "ASAP"; WWW via the ASAPWeb History of Australian Science and Technology page.

For further information contact the librarian, Rosanne Clayton (rosanne.clayton@asap.unimelb.edu.au).
