Synopsis: Provides concise biographical profiles of more than 100 men and women who have made significant contributions in the field of computer science.

From Booklist: Facts On File has issued another in the Notable Scientists series. The purpose of the series is to provide students at the high-school through early college level with relevant information on great scientists in history as well as lesser-known ones, especially in the disciplines not usually covered in the more well known biographical reference sources. Although other aspects of each scientist's life are covered, the emphasis is on the work and contributions to the discipline and to society.

Coveragein the computer science volume ranges from Charles Babbage, who in 1836 conceived of the first computer, to Shawn Fanning, the Napster entrepreneur who created a method for computer users to grow their music libraries by swapping MP3 files over the Internet. The alphabetically arranged entries profile more than 150 computer scientists who blazed the trail for the pervasiveness of computer technology in our lives. Each entry begins with a heading that lists field of occupation, birth and death dates, and nationality and ends with a list of further readings. Essays range in length from 900 to 1,750 words, and many are accompanied by a black-and-white photograph. A very valuable feature is the index, which lists topics, computer languages, research centers, computer companies, and other points of access to the entries. Also useful are a time line, a glossary, and a list of entries organized by field of activity, such as engineering, mathematics, and programming.

Like other titles in the series, this one is recommended for high-school, public, and undergraduate libraries. In high schools, the series would be a useful career as well as biographical reference. RBB
