'Galaxy of Knowledge,' Smithsonian Libraries' portal to its collections and a wide array of exceptional Internet resources, has re-launched with an entirely new look and navigational structure.
For full details, a press release is available in the Smithsonian Libraries' Press Room, located at:
Reminiscent of a cabinet of curiosities, which formed the nucleus of many contemporary museum collections, Smithsonian Libraries' 'Galaxy of Knowledge'reflects the specialized fields studied within the walls of the Smithsonian's 16 museums, its research centers, and zoological park. Designed with both the public and the classroom in mind, the Libraries' collections have tremendous potential for popular education and entertainment and contain subjects that appeal to museum visitors as well as to hobbyists, collectors, students and teachers.
Normally available only by appointment--with books and manuscripts kept in secure, controlled environments--Smithsonian Libraries’collections and the information that springs from research done within its community of 20 branch libraries can now be enjoyed internationally, 24 hours a day, with even greater ease.
