Pursuing the Heavens: Five Hundred Years of Planetary Sciences
Copernicus, Kepler, Galileo, Huygens, Newton, Halley, Herschel, Laplace,
Maxwell . . . You know the names; have you seen the originals? Even if
you have, come and see them again, up close and personal. The Cornell
Library's Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections will host a special
exhibition for conference attendees only on Monday and Tuesday of DPS 2008.
Key works in the history of planetary sciences, selected from the Division's
renowned History of Science Collections, will be on display.
Where: Kroch Library, Level 2B (the lowest level)
Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections
When: Monday and Tuesday (October 13th and 14th), 12:00 noon to 1:30 p.m. only.
Directions to the exhibition: Kroch Library is entered through Olin Library.
Upon entering Olin (the entrance is across from the Clock Tower), go straight
ahead for as far as you can go. You will enter Kroch Library as you proceed
straight ahead. When you can no longer go straight ahead, there will be an
elevator on your right and stairs down on the left. Take either down as far
as you can go (two levels). You will come out in the main reception area of
the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections. There will be staff present
to direct you from there.
Attendance limited: Due to the nature and quantity of material on display,
attendance in the exhibition space will be limited to 50 people at all times.
Please plan accordingly.
