Old Weather Project

The Old Weather project seeks to "recover worldwide weather observations to help improve climate model predictions." Toward that goal, the Old Weather project relies on the power of "citizen science" crowd sourcing to transcribe historical weather patters recorded in logbooks by sailors on research vessels from the 19th and 20th century.


PhilSci-Archive is an online archive for preprints in the philosophy of science, where a preprint is an early, but complete, version of a new research paper. It is offered as a free service to the philosophy of science community. The goal of the archive is to promote communication in the field by the rapid dissemination of new work.

The Casebooks Project

The Casebooks Project makes the richest set of surviving medical records before 1750 publicly available through cutting edge digital resources. Simon Forman and Richard Napier, two of England's most famous astrologers, recorded 85,000 consultations between 1596 and 1634. These records are difficult to use because they are inscribed within an astrological framework and written in messy, antiquated handwriting. The Casebooks Project presents an edition of the records which can be searched and browsed, with facilities for sophisticated navigation and interrogation of the data.

University of Oklahoma History of Science Project

The Online Galleries of the University of Oklahoma Libraries offer over 60,000 high resolution images of plates, engravings, portraits, title pages and maps from the holdings of the History of Science Collections. Images are captured at a quality that is easier to examine than the original page, so turn to the galleries when a work has fine detail that repays close scrutiny. Browse these galleries when you need engravings, portraits, maps and illustrations for scholarly examination, or iconic images of pedagogical value for your teaching and presentations.

Wallace Correspondence Project

The Wallace Correspondence Project seeks to locate, digitize, catalogue, transcribe and interpret all surviving letters to and from the great 19th century naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913). Additionally, letters from Wallace's contemporaries, like Darwin and Huxley, which make mention of him are also included, as are a selection of other important manuscript documents which are not letters. Wallace is the 'father' of evolutionary biogeography and the co-discoverer with Charles Darwin of the process of evolution by natural selection.
