We have included here a selection of links to web sites that contain material featured at the workshops. In some cases, these are sites which were a part of a presentation at a previous workshop. Please note that we are not trying to create a full list of history of astronomy links, but only those relevant to the workshops.
We are especially interested in adding web sites that are connected with individuals who regularly attend the workshops. If you have a personal or institutional web site that is relevant to the history of astronomy, and you have been a participant at previous workshops, please share that link with Matt Dowd, University of Notre Dame (e-mail).

- SCIAMVS - Sources and Commentaries in Exact Sciences. A journal concerned with the history of exact sciences before A.D. 1600 that focuses on making available original sources, especially critical editions of unpublished texts as well as their translation into modern languages (preferably English) together with comments and notes.
- HAD (Historical Astronomy Division). A division of the American Astronomical Society. Members of HAD have contributed much to the workshops.
- History of Astronomy, Bonn. A great source for links to items of interest around the world on history of astronomy. Though not affiliated with the workshop, it has such a wide range of links that we include it here.
