The Fisher Library is actively involved in digitization in order to increase access to our print and manuscript collections. All of our projects provide both page images, enhanced indexing features, and the capability to conduct full text searching on the contents of the documents themselves. The Fisher digital collections were developed here at the University of Toronto in collaboration with the staff of Preservation Services and Information Technology Services. Our work has been made possible through the generous support of funding agencies and individual donations. Please see the Sponsors section of each project's homepage for fuller details.
The Comité français d'Histoire de la Géologie (Cofrhigeo) was created in 1976, on François Ellenberger's initiative. Its main purpose is to contribute to the history of geological sciences, particularly (but not only) in France and other French-speaking countries. Its second aim is to promote a methodological reflection on the means and results of geological research by analyzing the controversies of the past as well as the recent conflicts. It is indeed quite as significant to understand the reasons of the errors and blindness of our predecessors as to write the history of progress and discoveries.
This site, hosted by Comite Francais d'Histoire de la Geologie provides information about forthcoming meetings, congresses and exhibitions devoted to Earth science history; information about Cofrhigeo publications, a bibliography of about a hundred books in French, English, Italian, Spanish or German; approximately 150 links for other Web sites, a bulletin board and search engines to speed searches.

HOPOS, The International Society for the History of Philosophy of Science, is devoted to promoting serious, scholarly research on the history of the philosophy of science. We construe this subject broadly, to include topics in the history of related disciplines and in all historical periods, studied through diverse methodologies. We aim to promote historical work in a variety of ways, but especially through encouraging exchange among scholars through meetings, publications, and electronic media.

Hellinomnimon is a digital library which consists of all the philosophical and scientific manuscripts written in Greek from 1600 to 1821. The first phase of Hellinomnimon has been completed from September 1995 to September 1997. This phase involved the process of digitizing all the books. The second phase involves the analogous processes for the manuscripts and is projected to be completed by 2002.
