The Historical Archives of IUPAC at the Science History Institute

Ronald Brashear
Published Online: 2019-06-14 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/ci-2019-0318


As IUPAC begins celebrating its centennial this year, it seems appropriate to remind everyone that the historical record of IUPAC is preserved in the archives of the Science History Institute’s Othmer Library. For the rich history of IUPAC to be told correctly and effectively, the archive is absolutely critical. And the existing archive speaks to the importance of the Institute’s desire to continue to build the collection, filling in gaps that currently exist and adding future materials so that we can craft an even better history when IUPAC celebrates in bicentennial in 2119.
