American Journal of Science

Here is a Science site recommended this week by The Scout Report (one of my favorite resources for finding new things on the web). And, of course, we are lucky enough to have a set of The American Journal of Science available right down the street at the MBLWHOI Libraryas well.

“Started in 1818, the American Journal of Science (originally called The American Journal of Science and Arts) is the oldest scientific journal published without interruption in the United States. Today the Journal deals only with geology and related earth science, but for many years it covered a wider range of scientific and artistic endeavors. Recently, staff members at Carnegie Mellon University’s library decided to create an online collection, which contains over 140 volumes of the Journal. Visitors can search the entire contents of the collection at their leisure, or they can just browse around for a bit. For historians of science and those with a curiosity about what scientists and others found of importance in the 19th century, this collection will be invaluable.  The site is rounded out by a FAQ area and a link to other digital collections created by Carnegie Mellon University.”
