This month Dr. Paul Stein, Professor of Chemistry, graces the homepage of the Library as part of our Faculty Read What? series. Dr. Stein will be retiring this spring after almost 40 years of service to the College. Like all good scientists, Dr. Stein feels the need to categorize the world, so he brings his five "personal favorite of most influential books" as a taxonomy, if you will. For your further edification, and in keeping with the spirit of the sciences, while we were not able to create a periodic table of books, we have included the Latin genus and species of each title.
