The Dalhousie University Libraries are pleased to announce that Volumes 1 to 34 of the Proceedings of the Nova Scotian Institute of Science are now available online. Spanning the years 1863 to 1984, the historic back issues of the journal can be found in the DalSpace repository at:

The Libraries embarked on this digitization project to provide greater access to the Proceedings and to highlight the achievements of the Nova Scotian Institute of Science, a learned society which celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2012. The online publication contains hundreds of articles published by Nova Scotian scientists and provides insights into the history of science and the development of scientific research throughout the province.

Funding for this project was granted by the Dalhousie Libraries Digital Initiatives Committee and through a donation from the Nova Scotian Institute of Science.
