Through a special arrangement with the American Council of Learned Societies, Charles Scribner's Sons has arranged not only to provide the New Dictionary Of Scientific Biography in eBook format, but also to digitize the entire back-file of the original 18-volume Dartmouth Medal-winning Dictionary Of Scientific Biography. The resulting 26-volume eBook, the Complete Dictionary Of Scientific Biography, provides library patrons with the world's largest and most comprehensive collection of narrative scientific biographies of mathematicians and natural scientists from all countries and from all historical periods. It presents an accurate and reliable narrative of the development of science, not as a mere accumulation of technical information but as the collective accomplishment that has ordered our understanding of nature. By detailing the achievements and personalities behind the quest to understand the natural world, the Complete Dictionary Of Scientific Biography sheds light on not just the history of science, but on the history of humankind.
