The world news exploded with reports of the discovery of the Higgs Boson on July 4 (if you missed the CERN report, read it here!). At the Library, we have several books that tell the story of the search for the Higgs.
- Massive : the missing particle that sparked the greatest hunt in science

If you missed it, the presentations are archived here. Now for some fun and informative videos…
