Book donations at the IET
The IET library receives book donations on a regular basis. These come from various sources; from the author of a newly published book, from members of staff wanting to make space in their office/home; or from a relative/colleague/solicitor when a member has passed away and they are left with the unhappy task of sorting through their belongings.

One of the more recent donations we received was from an author based in America:
Title: Extraordinary Women in Science and Medicine: four centuries of achievement
Authors: R K Smeltzer, R J Ruben, P Rose

This is a collection of papers on various women in the fields of physics, chemistry, astronomy, mathematics, computer and medical sciences. Some of the women covered include:
Augusta Ada Byron, Countess of Lovelace 1815-1852
Hertha Ayrton 1854-1923
Elizabeth Fulhame fl. 1780-1794
Grace Murray Hopper 1906-1992
Florence Nightingale 1820-1910

Library shelf mark: 92:621.3 SME

The IET archives also has a useful research guide on Women in Engineering

If you have items you wish to donate to the Library please compose a list, with as much information as possible: title, author, edition, year of publication and ISBN if there is one and send it to
We may already have the items in stock that you wish to donate, if that is the case we will send you a listing of other organisations and second-hand bookshops who may be interested in your books.

If you wish to donate books to the Library and would like to see if we already have any of them within our stock or if you are a member and would like to borrow any of these books or browse the Library catalogue go to
