History of Science

In addition to training on the current exhibit and general considerations, docents receive training in the history of science.  

  • What is the "history of science" anyway?  Is it history or is it science?  Who would find it interesting?  
  • What is the "History of Science Collections"?  How did it get started? Who may use it? Are the books original and how did they come to OU?  

These and other questions are explored in this section of the docent manual.
