Australian Academy of Science Adolph Basser Library
The Library is named after the philanthropist Sir Adolph Basser (1887-1965) whose gift of £25,000 ($50,000) in 1960 enabled it to be established. It collects both published and unpublished material documenting the history of science in Australia, and promotes related historical research. There is particular emphasis on collecting biographical material about prominent scientists.
