Dibner’s best known work is The Heralds of Science (1955, updated in 1980), a selection of what Dibner considered to be the 200 most important books in the history of science. The Heralds has become a widely used reference tool among bibliographers, booksellers, and scholars. In 1992 David Dibner, Bern’s son and only child, and David’s wife, Frances, set about to fulfill Bern’s dream by establishing the Dibner Institute for the History of Science and Technology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Realizing the importance of situating scholars close to their source materials, the Burndy Library was housed there to support the work of scholars at the institute.
