Internet resources for neuroscience history: another update

Russell A. JOHNSON
University of California, Los Angeles, USA

Since the first annual meeting of the International Society for the History of the Neurosciences (ISHN) in Buffalo in 1996, the number and variety of Internet-based communication and information retrieval resources for historians has skyrocketed. E-mail, listservs, homepages, and bibliographic indexes have been joined and in some cases supplanted by full-text and audiovisual databases, blogs, and Google™. This presentation will offer a primer to some of the commonplace, new, and/or most useful tools, including the Index-Catalogue of the Library of the Surgeon-General’s Office, PubMed, and the Online Archive of California and similar gateways. Neuroscience historians will be asked to discuss their information needs and to recommend digital or digitized resources for librarians, archivists, and other information professionals to procure, reformat, refine, or create.
