Last summer marked the 200th birthday of Eunice Foote. The now somewhat better known women’s rights activist from the USA was one of the rare female researchers in the field of physical sciences in the 19th century. On the occasion of International Women’s Day on March 8, Eunice Foote will be briefly introduced here.
The exhibition consists of the thematic displays “Digital connectivity”, “New types of publication” and “Finding Literature”. It tries to make the black box “Science”, i.e. the question “How does science actually work”, more transparent to the general public. In the end this is the core of Open Science, as Guido Scherp – Head of the Open Science Transfer Department at the ZBW – also writes in the short booklet accompanying the exhibition:
Basically, Open Science is about improving the trustworthiness and the quality of research in a digitally linked age. The most important instrument for this is openness, resp. transparency.
The accompanying booklet, which is available in German and in English, provides a brief and concise overview of Open Science.
Open Access, Open Data, Open Educational Resources, Open Methodology, Open Science, Open Source, Open Peer Review – movements dedicated to the openness, transparency and accessibility of information.

Introductury literature to start studying or even for the first exams, should be found in the textbook collection in the left area of the reading room on the ground floor. The books are in alphabetical order of the subject groups.The first shelf block begins with Agricultural Sciences (AG), in the middle block can be found Mathematics (MA) and Mechanical Engineering (MS), on the window side rear follow for example Process Technology (VT) and Materials Sciences (WK).
In the textbook collection there are often a large number of circulating library copies of one title. If you will not find any loan copies, there are other options:
Sometimes an electronic edition is available, in every case there is for every textbook title at least one archive copy (reference copy). It may not be borrowed, and therefore it is available for everybody during the opening hours .
