As I finished up the report for the second Pathogenic Microbiology lab, I found myself – again – wanting access to a classic scientific paper.
I mean really classic. I mean, all professional microbiologists know what a Gram stain is, but how many have actually read Gram’s “Über die isolierte Färbung der Schizomyceten in Schnitt- und Trockenpräparaten” Published in “Fortschritte der Medizin” in 1884.
I wonder what would happen if I asked the college library to get me a copy via Inter-Library Loan?
A short post on what the heck “Schizomycete” means may be in order later, too.
