Papers eerste vrouwelijke professor in Europa komen online

 Bericht van de Standford University:
Laura Bassi, a noted 18th-century Italian scientist and Europe's first female professor, left behind 6,000 pages of intriguing documents that describe her life and work. They now rest in the archives of the principal municipal library in Bologna, Italy, safe but not accessible to the world at large.

That is about to change. Stanford's libraries  have teamed up with the Bologna library and the Istituto per i beni culturali della Regione Emilia-Romagna to scan Bassi's archives and make them easily accessible online later this year.
