Acquisitions for history of science, medicine & technology, Aug- Sep 2017

This is a list of books added to our catalog with call number Q-T and history or biography in the subject headings plus a few books ordered by request. This is not a comprehensive list of new books. There are certainly other new books related to the history of science, technology and medicine, so please search the catalog for specific titles. Requests welcome! You can send requests to Ruth Lewis, to your primary Subject Librarian, or to the book request form. Please specify format when you care; while there are good reasons to buy ink-on-paper book or ebooks when they are available on user-friendly platforms, I would prefer to avoid stretching our limited budget to buy BOTH formats. Please click on the titles for current location and status of the book. Remember that the Becker Medical Library also adds books and ebooks which may interest WU history of science folks!
