Join the Linda Hall Library and the Royal Astronomical Society for a series exploring connections between our respective collections.

Dean, this series will introduce the two organisations to attendees, and highlight astronomical notable items in our collections.
This session will introduce the two organisations and their histories to our audience. Sian and Jason will discuss the founding and purpose of each institution and their collections. They will also highlight how their collections can be used today to inspire exploration in astronomical science for all.
