SCOPE

This is a guide to sources relating to the history and contributions of women in the fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM). Also included are resources on present-day women scientists, as well as materials on the current status and concerns of women in the sciences. Related titles are Science Tracer Bullet Career Opportunities in Science and Technology (TB 05-4), Science Reference Guide Girls & Science Education: How to Engage Girls in Science, and the bibliographies and guides listed in Science Subject Guide Biography, History of Science. An update of Tracer Bullet 90-6, this compilation is not intended to be a comprehensive bibliography but is designed--as the name of the series implies--to put the reader "on target."
