Project Information

This project was hosted at the
Dibner Institute for the
History of Science and Technology

and funded jointly by the
Dibner Fund and the
Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
The Library of the Calfornia Institute of Technology presents the History of Recent Science & Technology site as it was in June of 2006. There is no agency relationship of any kind between or among the Dibner Institute or the Dibner Fund and the California Institute of Technology or the Library of the same.

The project goal is to build a web-based collaborative system and digital library for the history of five contemporary technical fields. To that end, we are adapting and integrating the ArsDigita Collaborative System (specifically, its cousin openACS), and the Perseus digital library system. We gratefully acknowledge ArsDigita and Perseus, as well as the larger open source community, for making their software available to projects like ours.
