AMS Begins Project to Use the World Wide Web to Document the Recent History of Earth Sciences The exponential growth of science has far out- site, pioneers who worked on these topics will be urged stripped traditional means for recording the history of to submit personal recollections, documents or point- this growth. This severely impedes scholarly evalua- ers to collections of documents, and comments on ma- tion and public understanding of science and technol- terials submitted by others. The material will be gath- ogy because there is often very little of the historical ered in searchable databases and the sites will include record beyond what is published in the technical jour- discussion forums where individuals can make their nals. The AMS has joined with the American Geo- own contributions to the collection. If this initiative succeeds, it will result in a mechanism for gathering physical Union and the American Institute of Physics much historical information about developments in the (Center for History of Physics) to experiment with atmospheric and related sciences that would otherwise using the World Wide Web to locate, create, and pre- serve historical documentation in science and technol- be lost. ogy.
