Biographical / Historical
The Oxford University Scientific Society (OUSS), formerly known as the Oxford University Junior Scientific Club (OUJSC), is one of the oldest student-led societies in the world. Started in 1882, with the earliest use of the current name tracing back to 1948, the Scientific Society strives to disseminate good science to The University and beyond. During the academic term, the society brings speakers across scientific disciplines to talk about their work. The society aims to connect aspiring scientists with interesting ideas and interesting individuals at the forefront of the scientific field.
Material has been arranged into three categories: Administrative records, lectures and publications, and historical records.
