For Your Weekend Repository Browsing Pleasure: “Marine Biological Laboratory Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Library”

Ithaca, NY The name “Woods Hole” has been synonymous with scientific discovery and exploration for more than a century. The Marine Biological Laboratory Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (MBL WHOI) Library has been a partner in sustaining the Woods Hole scientific community from the beginning.

“Founded in 1888, the MBL is the oldest independent marine laboratory in the Americas, taking advantage of a coastal setting in the Cape Cod village of Woods Hole, Massachusetts. To date, 54 MBL-affiliated scientists have been awarded the Nobel Prize, among many other honors received by the laboratory’s researchers.” –Wikipedia

Among many outstanding resources and services (http://www.mblwhoilibrary.org/services/info/index.html), the Library’s exhibits provide online visitors with an opportunity to experience the rich history of exploration at Woods Hole.

Notable is the “James Cook: The Art of Exploration” exhibit which features a gallery of images hand-drawn by artists who accompanied Captain James Cook on voyages in the Pacific from 1768-1780 before the age of photography.
