The National Academies Press is making all its entire catalog of 4,000 books available for free reading online or download. Some of the titles relevant to medical school faculty:
- Prudent Practices in the Laboratory: Handling and Management of Chemical Hazards
- On Being A Scientist: A Guide to Responsible Conduct in Research
- Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals
- Training Physicians for Public Health Careers
You can still buy physical copies of the book, but if you’d like to skim a portion, this is a valuable resource. It’s also helpful to scholars in institutions without large library budgets.
