Adler Planetarium Joins Consortium

The Consortium is delighted to welcome the Adler Planetarium as a member institution.

The Adler Planetarium in Chicago, IL, is the United States' oldest planetarium and the only independent planetarium in the world to steward significant collections and engage in science and history research. The Adler's collections on astronomy and space exploration include large collections of astronomical and surveying instruments, astronomical texts and tables, and treatises on mathematics, optics, physics, astrology, geography, and navigation.

We look forward to providing research fellowships to scholars seeking to use the Adler's collections as well as incorporating the Adler into the Consortium's online community through our programming, online search tools, and calendar of events.
