The value of collected works in mathematics

One of my major focuses for the math department over the next few weeks will be working on identifying collected works to add to the library collection. I owe a thanks to Dr. Hassett for reminding me how important collected works are, and to the work of Steven Rockey at Cornell for making the process easier. I will be working from his list at http://astech.library.cornell.edu/ast/math/find/Collected-Works-of-Mathematicians.cfm which he started  in the 1970’s and from The History of Mathematics from Antiquity to the
Present: A Selective Annotated Bibliography
, edited by Joseph W.
Dauben: Revised Edition on CD-ROM edited by Albert C. Lewis, in
cooperation with the International Commission on the
History of Mathematics.
