[News logo]Harold White Fellowships

The National Library of Australia has called for applications for the 1996 Harold White Fellowships.

The purpose of the Fellowships is to enable established scholars and writers to undertake research on the Library's collections for periods of from three to six months. Depending on their circumstances, Fellows may be paid a weekly grant and be reimbursed for their fares to and from Canberra. All Fellows are entitled to a number of privileges, such as access to the Library outside normal opening hours, the use of the Fellows' Room, access to the bookstacks and free photocopying.

As the Australian legal deposit library since 1912, the National Library has a comprehensive collection of Australian books, journals and other publications. Its manuscript collection includes the papers of a number of scientists, as well as records of organisations such as the Australian National Research Council. The pictorial, map and oral history collections also hold records of relevance for historians of science. The holdings of overseas scientific publications are very uneven, but there is some strength in the field of the history and philosophy of science.

The closure date for applications is 30 April 1995. Application forms can be obtained from Graeme Powell at the National Library. His phone number is (06) 2621258/ fax number is (06) 2571703 and e-mail address is g.powell@nla.gov.au. It should be noted that postgraduate students are not eligible for Fellowships unless they have already completed their theses.
