The road from chemistry—to microbiology—to information science

Abstract

Looking back at her professional life as a chemist, microbiologist, biochemist, information specialist, librarian, and editor, the author of this book discusses how timing, technology, and luck have taken her across borders, continents, and cultures and have influenced her thinking, interests, and motivation.
