An edit of the manuscript at the National Library of Portugal, Códice 8570 (F 2154), titled Miscelânea de Notícias Históricas (Lembrança dos Factos Sucedidos em Évora), pg. 81. This volume is a chronlogic compendium of notable facts and it is written in type letter, typical of the third quarter of the 16th Century. The microfilm is of poor quality, therefore, a review this transcript following the original manuscript is of very high interest.

Minutes of the Conselho Escolar of the Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon
CIUHCT is associated with the commemorations of the Faculty's centenary, by making available the digitalisations of the twelve Minutes books of the institution's Conselho Escolar, covering the years between November 1912 and March 1974. Through the minutes of the Conselho, a governing body consisting of full professors, we can follow with great detail the lively discussions, and subsequent decisions, relative to structuring aspects of the faculty's life. The documents are preserved at the Historical Archive of the Museum of Science of the University of Lisbon.
These digitalizations were obtained during the research work for the book Uma História da FCUL, 1911-1974, by Ana Simões, Ana Carneiro, Maria Paula Diogo, Luís Miguel Carolino e Teresa Salomé Mota, launched as part of the celebrations.
