Science in Latin America Archive March 3, 2010Posted by Will Thomas in Uncategorized.
This has apparently been up for a while, but it’s just rattled down to my desk through the pneumatic tubes. So, if, like me, you haven’t been aware of it, check out the History of Science in Latin America and the Carribean (HOSLAC) from the University of New Hampshire. Once you land, go to the archive/database, then launch the Virtual Archive, at which point you’ll be brought to a slick Flash application, which tours you through a series of artifacts, topics, and resources. The reading of “science” is broad: you’ll also find much on ancient and recent Latin American cultures, exploration, technology, medicine, and agriculture. All in all, very nicely done.
