Science History Institute

Travel across England from the comfort of your own living room! In this short talk and Q&A, digital collections intern Margaret Hartnett shares stories of 19th-century English naturalists who wrote about their scientific adventures in travelogues. Discover the natural world, political landscapes, and history of the places these travelers visited, and get an up-close look at our collections—virtually, of course.


About Library Pop-Ups

Library Pop-Ups offer visitors an opportunity to see the books and archives researchers travel around the world to investigate at the Science History Institute. Normally held in our museum between 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. on the second Friday of each month, our librarians and curators from the Othmer Library will share highlights from our collections through fun, theme-oriented activities and programs.
