LOCAL SECTION MEETINGS throughout the U.S. and Canada with instructional programs and workshops and where suppliers exhibit their glassware and equipment.
AN ANNUAL SYMPOSIUM with seminars, workshops, technical papers and posters underscores the Society’s dedication to the education of its members. The symposium provides an excellent venue for networking with colleagues and for equipment manufacturers and suppliers to display their products and services.
THE QUARTERLY PUBLICATION FUSION contains technical articles (mostly written by members), references and abstracts from other publications, book reviews, new product information, local section reports and announcements, committee reports, and information about health and safety concerns. Fusion is an excellent source for vendor information with ads of goods and services (specifically related to scientific glassblowing). Classified ads for used equipment and surplus glass, as well as employment opportunities round out the offerings. A Fusion subscription is a member benefit but is also available to non-members and institutes by subscription.
THE ASGS PROCEEDINGS contains the technical papers from each symposium. This is free to all members.
AN ON-LINE DISCUSSION GROUP for technical queries makes the expertise of hundreds of professionals with many years of combined experience available to members, often in a matter of minutes.
AN EXTENSIVE COLLECTION OF VIDEOS which document various methods and techniques of scientific glassblowing. These instructive videos, which range from basic skills appropriate for our Junior members to unusual techniques needed for complicated assemblies, can be borrowed by members.
THE CUMULATIVE INDEX, a bibliography of all ASGS publications, is a collection of over 5000 article citations of interest to scientific glassblowers. This is available to members in a CD format.
MENTOR PROGRAMS for Junior members.
