The pathology collection supports the, M.S. and Ph.D. in Pathology, as well as programs in the Schools of Medicine and Basic Health Sciences. Dentistry students receive instruction in the basic principles regarding alternation of structure and function in disease and in the pathogenesis and effect of disease in the various organ systems. The collection also supports the M.S. and Ph.D. programs in Microbiology and Immunology, Anatomy, Biochemistry, Human Genetics, and Physiology, and the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Biology. Research interests of thedepartment include biochemical and clinical applications of enzyme and protein immobilization, clinical enzymology, techniques in clinical chemistry, membranes in the pathogenesis of muscular dystrophy, mechanism of complement drug metabolism, mast cells, immune effector systems, cancer-induced DNA damage and repair, and cancer induced by chemical and physical agents.
2. General Collection Guidelines.
English is the primary language for the monographic and serials collections. Foreign or multi-language journal and monographic titles are purchased selectively, particularly research works of importance.
Treatment of Subject.
Both lower and upper division textbooks are acquired selectively. Primary emphasis is on graduate and professional texts and journals reporting current research and research methods.
Types of Materials and Formats.
Monographs and periodicals are the principal formats. Indexes, abstracts, encyclopedias, dictionaries, handbooks, bibliographies, data tables and charts, atlases, as well as conference proceedings and symposia are also collected. Acquisition of serials takes precedence over that of monographs. Laboratory manuals are not generally collected. Dissertations are added only by special request. Audio-visual materials, principally videotapes and slide-audio tapes, are also collected and housed in the Learning Resource Centers.
3. Area Resources.
There are no comparable resources in the area.
