This winter Professor Stephen Weldon published his tenth volume of the Isis Bibliography. It was physically the largest bibliography that Weldon has produced to date, stretching to 360 pages, well over last year's page count. Much of the credit for this achievement must go to Weldon's two graduate assistants, John Stewart and Jared Buss. They deserve special commendation, not only because of their record-breaking achievement, but also because they managed this during the same year that each of them became a new father!
The Isis Bibliography is the oldest continuously published resource of its kind in our field, looking toward its centennial year in 2013. Much has changed in the intervening years. In particular, it is now available in several digital formats, some of which are free. Most research libraries around the country have a subscription to the "History of Science, Technology, and Medicine Database" where the annual Isis data accumulates. (If you are logged into the OU server, you can get this link at http://libraries.ou.edu/access.aspx?id=1656.) This information can also be accessed through the WorldCat.org service--a freely available resource. Finally, PDFs of individual bibliographies at least one year old can be retrieved from the History of Science Society's website for no charge. (You can find links to these resources at http://www.hssonline.org/publications/current_bibliography_oclc.html.)
