Conversations with physicists.

This exhibit highlights the unique and important Oral History Interviews collection held at the Niels Bohr Library & Archives. The exhibit explains what oral histories are, their potential uses, and specifics about the OHI collection. The exhibit also features quotes from several prominent physicists, including Niels BohrGeorge CarruthersCecilia Payne-Gaposchkin,Gordon Gould, and Luis Alvarez, among others. The exhibit will be displayed in 2013 to celebrate the 1,000th transcript uploaded to the OHI website.

Two social media campaigns accompany and enhance the exhibit, namely “Voices from the Past”: a Flickr and Facebook campaign featuring photographs and quotes from physicists, and “Physicists Love Libraries!”: a Facebook campaign featuring quotes from physicists about how libraries and librarians impacted their lives.
