Charkes Nuclear Medicine collection

In the fall of 2013 the Bernard Becker Medical Library received a collection of books about nuclear medicine from alumni N. David Charkes, MD ’55.  Dr. Charkes is a Professor Emeritus of Radiology at Temple University School of Medicine.

Dr. Charkes‘s collection of more than 500 books, scholarly research articles, scientific papers and symposium proceedings includes materials from the early 1900s through the present.  This lengthy time span allows for a glimpse of the history of education of atomic energy and medicine, and provides a framework for future academic research. 



The library plans to keep the Charkes Nuclear Medicine collection together as a non-circulating reference collection in order to retain its historical perspective on atomic energy and nuclear medicine.   The Collection Management staff is currently processing the collection.    

The Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) 2014 Annual Meeting will be held in St. Louis from June 7-11, 2014.  During this time, meeting attendees will be able to view the collection by showing their Conference ID to the staff at the Information Services desk.
