Digital Collections: Historical Scientific Instruments are Organized into Digital Catalogue by University of Toronto Researchers
From The Star:
Historical scientific instruments and artifacts stored at the University of Toronto are coming to light in an ever-growing digital catalogue that includes objects such as an EEG machine.
The catalogue is composed of “important pieces of evidence” in the history of science, curator Erich Weidenhammer said.
There are around 800 to 1,000 objects in the online catalogue, which has been under development since 2009 and is supported by the Institute for the History and Philosophy of Science and Technology (IHPST).
