The Baker-Michaelson Collection of books on women in STEM

The following collection of about 200 books have been donated by myself and my friend Dr Rosa Michaelson to the Lovelace-Drummond section on women in STEM at the Glasgow Women’s Library. We also donated a lot of ‘grey materials’ – reports and so on which are often not allocated ISBNs and often don’t get archived when the originating organisation disappears. We believe this collection may be unique in the UK, as many of the books are not even in the British Library.
