Title: Carnegie Institution for Science
Url: http://carnegiescience.edu/
Publisher: Carnegie Institution of Washington
Description: Andrew Carnegie was known for his philanthropy, and in 1895 he contributed his vast wealth to creating 22 various organizations that still bear his name. In 1901 he created what became known as the Carnegie Institution for Science with an initial gift of $10 million. Over the past century, the Institution has continued to support a wide range of scientific endeavors, and researchers such as Edwin Hubble, Barbara McClintock, and Andrew Fire have been associated with this august organization. On their first-rate site, visitors can browse through sections that profile their various departments (which include embryology and global ecology), read their latest reports, and view an interactive calendar of events sponsored by the Institute. Visitors with a scholarly bent will want to browse on over to the "Publications/Archives" section. Here they will find the Institute's annual report, listings of their books in prints, and a wide selection of online books. The online offerings span the past five decades, and visitors can view everything from "Ceramics for the Archaeologist" to "How Galaxies Rotate". Those persons looking for specific information about the Institution's academic departments would do well to click on through to the "Departments" area to learn more about fellowships, employment opportunities, and recent and forthcoming conferences.
