Join the Linda Hall Library and the Royal Astronomical Society for a series exploring connections between our respective collections. Hosted as a four part conversation between the Society’s Librarian, Sian Prosser, and the Library’s Vice President for Special Collections, Jason W. Dean, this series will introduce the two organizations to attendees, highlight astronomical notable items in our collections, discuss the connection of archival material to published material, and discuss in depth the Pechell family and the material both institutions hold regarding that family.
This session will introduce the two organizations and their histories to our audience. Sian and Jason will discuss the founding and purpose of each institution, their historical collections, and current collecting focuses. They will also highlight how their collections can be used today to inspire exploration in astronomical science for all
