History of Science Collections and Selectors
The history of science collection is located primarily in the Marston Science Library. Historically important primary publications are in Special Collections. However, other related material can be found in the other Libraries. These resources cover the history and philosophy of science, technology, engineering, agriculture and medicine. Library locations and the selectors involved with this collection are listed below.
- History of Science, Agriculture, Engineering & Technology
These materials are located at the Marston Science Library. The selector is Vernon Kisling. In addition, each science librarian selects historical material in their subject area.
- Philosophy of Science & Technology
These materials are in the Marston Science Library if they pertain to a specific discipline. More generalized H&SS materials, usually housed in Library West, are currently in storage and must be requested using the online form in the Libraries Catalog. The selector is Blake Landor.
- History & Philosophy of Medicine

These materials are located in Library East / Smathers Library as part of the Special Collections, especially the Rare Books Collection.
UF Library Resources - Primary Materials
Primary materials are original editions of scientific publications. Older primary materials are essential to the understanding of how scientific concepts developed - they are the history of science. Books and other publications about the history of science are secondary sources. Some older publications may be found in the other libraries, but most are located in the Special Collections, Library East / Smathers Library.
- Special Collections has a good selection of rare books for science (general), mathematics, astronomy, physics and chemistry. An index to these publications is available and searchable by author and date. They are located in Library East / Smathers Library.
- Landmarks of Science is a microfilm collection of important science books and journals (1600s-1900s) currently in storage - use the Libraries Catalog request form. A paper index to these publications is available at Library West.
- Early English Books Online is an electronic collection available via the Libraries Database Locator. From the first book printed in English by William Caxton, through the age of Spenser and Shakespeare and the tumult of the English Civil War, Early English Books Online (EEBO) contains over 125,000 titles listed in Pollard & Redgrave's Short-Title Catalogue (1475-1640), Wing's Short-Title Catalogue (1641-1700), and the Thomason Tracts (1640-1661).
