Model Research Collection

The Model Research Collection is a manifestation of a person’s or group’s process of investigation of a particular topic expressed physically through a collection of library resources. The selection of materials models the breadth and depth of what is available in the Yale University Library. The Model Research Collection curator selects relevant library resources from across the library system and in a variety of formats. Books from the circulating collections stand on the shelves, while electronic resources are accessible digitally. Each title contributes to an overall picture of how the resources of the Yale University Library system support innovative research in all disciplines. 

The 2023-2024 Model Research Collection in Bass Library is curated by Florian Carle, and is entitled, "From DOS to Qiskit: Turning Entanglement into Quantum Computation."Through selected titles from the Yale Library collections, Dr. Florian Carle of the Yale Quantum Institute invites you to discover how humans have used quantum theory, and in particular its implications for processing information in novel ways. Our selections also take some playful turns into the corners of the computing technology before quantum computers.Books were selected on five topics, including Quantum Theory, the History of Quantum Computers, Classical Computers, Quantum Computers in Pop Culture, and Applications of Quantum Computers.
