Visitors to this website might find the following advertisement for a residential fellowship of interest. Linda Hall Library has an excellent collection of rare books in history of science, many of which have been showcased in their on-line exhibition (http://www.lindahall.org/events_exhib/exhibit/index.shtml), and a large number of other items have been digitized (http://lhldigital.lindahall.org/).
Linda Hall Library resident fellowships for 2014 are now available. Fellowships up to $3,500 per month will assist scholars in financing a research visit.
Resident fellowships for the duration of a minimum of 1 month to a maximum of 9 months are offered in support of research projects in science, engineering, and technology; in the history of science, engineering and technology; or in interdisciplinary topics that link science or technology to the broader culture.

The application deadline is January 3, 2014.
