Where To Look When That Perfectly Good Decades-Old Instrument Needs Repairing
Friday, January 23, 2015
How does the Office of NIH History and Stetten Museum preserve and interpret the history of NIH? Through our collections! For example, our manual and trade catalog collections are two of the best collections on 20th-21st century medical research instruments in any museum or library in the world. Small businesses, government agencies, and lawyers all use these collections. Those who despair of ever repairing their equipment find relief by emailing us a request. Making a scientist, engineer, or student happy is my favorite part of my job. Check out our manuals at http://history.nih.gov/museum/manuals.html.
