The Linus and Ava Helen Pauling Papers at Oregon State have started a nice blog with discussions of Pauling’s life and work as well as cataloguing, collections management and preservation. (Pauling was an OSU grad.) They’ve put up tons of content already, so it’s a great resource on Pauling as well as on special collections work in general. OSU, which has a history of science graduate program, has extensive history of science special collections; the Pauling papers alone take up 1800 boxes! Go check them out!
