Applied Science and Technology Full Text
We've highlighted this database before, but this is such a useful source of practical information for technology and physical sciences. We also selected it because, like the alchemists, it supports experimentation and unconventional problem-solving.
Every week, one of the librarians creates a display of books around a theme. This week, the display features books about the history of chemistry and alchemy. Some of the books on alchemy contain reproductions of the work of the medieval alchemists. Feel free to check out any of these books.
Our collection of books doesn't just include the latest on molecular, organic and inorganic, quantum, and analytical chemistry. You can also find interesting (and highly entertaining) books about the history of chemistry from the ancient Greeks, through the alchemists, to the Scientific Revolution.
