Library research resources and tips for STS.467, Spring 2014


  • The MIT Institute Archives and Special Collections have posted a list of books about MIT
  • Try browsing the library stacks and reference sections around the call number T171.M42 for MIT reports, bulletins, and other publications.
  • Try a "Subject begins with" search in Barton for "Massachusetts Institute of Technology" and then browse the different subject headings about MIT. (Don't forget that you can limit by year if you do a Barton advanced search.)
  • Google Books is also a great place to look for historical texts. The site offers many thousands of searchable books digitized by Google in collaboration with libraries and publishers.
