Ready reference presentation: who facts in print

  1. 1. MacMillan Profiles: Women in Science Ready Reference Presentation: Finding Who in Print
  2. 2. Macmillan Profiles: Women in Science, Macmillan Reference USA, 2001.  The goal of this resource is to “present an exciting introduction to the life and times of female scientists from American and world history who have, through hard work and talent, become the best in their field”  The intended audience: students in middle and high school.  This book would be useful as a starting point for student research, as it includes: biographical information, scientific contributions, pertinent quotes and a timeline of women in science from 160 B.C. to 2000 A.D. Macmillan Profiles: Women in Science, Macmillan Reference USA, 2001.
  3. 3. How to use MacMillan Profiles: Women in Science This book is located at the Tinley Park Public Library in the Youth Services department . Find the book on the reference shelf. It’s OK to ask a librarian for help. (All those yellow stickers on the books means that you are at the reference section.)
  4. 4. You found it! This is the book you are looking for. Once you have it, open up to the Table of Contents. That’s in the front of the book, usually about 2-3 pages in.
  5. 5. The table of contents is labeled at the top of the page. Names are listed alphabetically. We will be looking at Ruth Fulton Benedict on page 18 to give you a sample of the information provided in the text.
  6. 6. Page Layout As you can see, the scientist’s name is in large print. Beneath the name you can find dates of birth and death, as well as the field in which she worked. There is also a timeline feature, and vocabulary words are included in the margins.
  7. 7. Index The Index is located at the back of the book. It is arranged alphabetically, and includes all of the pages where there is mention of the scientist. This is another way of locating your person of interest within the book. Here we see that Dian Fossey is on pages 110-113, as well as pages 122 and 135. This tells us that her main entry is on pages 110-113; this is where you would look to find the biographical article. The other two pages will have her name on them, but may not have much other information.
  8. 8. Time Line and Suggested Readings This text provides a time line at the back of the book which covers from 160 BC to 2000 AD. There is also a section on suggested readings to further your research. The page numbers for these can be found in the table of contents.
  9. 9. Sidebars Lastly, there are sidebars that cover topics from female Nobel laureates to recipients of the Elizabeth Blackwell Award. The sidebars are an opportunity to expand your understanding of the subject matter.
