The HPS Repository is a central database for storing and providing access to digital objects documenting the history and philosophy of science. The repository is where contributing users upload all of their objects for storage.
The content is divided into different communities and collections, each for a different contributing project. For example, current communities include the Embryo Project and Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) History.
When you visit the repository website, you can search or browse across all communities or limit your search to individual ones. You can also browse by author, title, subject, and date the object was submitted to the repository.
You can find content without having to log in, but to gain access to the repository for uploading content or using the data it contains, you will need an account. Please contact Kate MacCord (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
