The history of science is not a department at USC, however, courses pertaining to this subject are given in the history department and the philosophy department. CORE 103 deals with the history of biological thought. Even classes in literature can deal with one or more of the revolutions in science. This LibGuide is intended to help students find reference resources, books, and journal articles on the history of science from antiquity to the 20th century for their own interest or whether it is for a course. This guide is divided into: (1) Reference Resources in the History of Science; (2) Finding Books in the History of Science; and (3) Finding Journal Articles in the History of Science.
