This paper gives an account some of the ways in which the World Wide Web and other information technologies have been used to extend the scope of the history of science generally and the history of chemistry in particular. I observed that the World Wide Web contains a huge number of classical and literary works online, whereas the number of scientific works online is comparatively small. I have taken three actions to try to remedy this deficiency.
I hope that these actions will improve the research tools available to those interested in the history of science.
