The World of Mathematics: A Small Library of the Literature of Mathematics from A'h-mose the Scribe to Albert EinsteinThis gem can sometimes provide answers to the most arcane of questions, while conducting a tour through the history and traditions of mathematics. It is dated, so won't cover recent theory, but has excellent background material and is well indexed. Shelved in the stacks.Biographical sourcesBiographical Dictionary of MathematiciansOffers lengthy biographies of mathematicians from earliest times to the 20th century, including discussion of their work in the field. Each entry is followed by a detailed bibliography of primary and secondary sources.Notable Matematicians from Ancient Times to the PresentProvides biographical sketches of some 300 mathematicians from all time periods, including 50 women. Each biography includes selected writings and recommended readings. A timeline, list of mathematical prizes and their recipients, and a selective bibliography are included.Women of Mathematics: A Biobibliographical SourcebookProvides lengthy biographies and discussions of the contributions of women mathematicians with an emphasis on early times. Each biography is followed by a list of works by and about the subject.Browsing for BooksBooks are shelved in general subject categories using the Library of Congress classification system. You may want to supplement your use of the catalog with browsing shelf areas for your topic. Below is a brief listing of some of the subject locations in the field of mathematics and computer science.
