Project PHaEDRA

Please join us Oct. 4 for the second event in the Digital Futures Discovery Series, a year-long program led by Harvard’s Digital Futures Consortium that explores the ongoing transformation of scholarship through innovative technology. Daina Bouquin, Head Librarian at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, will discuss Project Phaedra: Preserving Harvard’s Early Data and Research in Astronomy.

Along with serving as a primary source on the evolution of observation methods and astronomy as a science, Project PHaEDRA preserves the key role women have played in scientific history in the form of logbooks and notebooks produced by the Harvard Computers, women who have been the subject of recent of books like “The Glass Universe” and “Rise of the Rocket Girls” and movies like “Hidden Figures.”

The presentation is scheduled for 11:45–12:45 at the Cabot Library discovery bar. Attendance is free. Learn more.
