New! Our library catalog now also shows items belonging to our partner libraries in the Marmot Library Network. You can place holds on most items from any library in the network and they will be sent to the Aims Learning Commons for you to pick up. Please know that it can take time to get items from other libraries, so plan accordingly.

The default for search results is ‘All Libraries’. Once you complete your initial search, you can limit to items belonging to Aims Kiefer Library by clicking on the ‘Aims Kiefer Library’, ‘On Shelf', or ‘Online Resources’ tabs below the search box.

To see what TEXTBOOKS the library has for a specific class, use the search box below and change the last dropdown box to either ‘in Course Reserves by Name or Number’ or ‘in Course Reserves by Instructor’. 

To REQUEST A TEXTBOOK (even if we don't currently have a copy available in the catalog), or a laptop/tablet/hotspot, please use the 'Reserve an Item' form.

Description
Diseases have had more influence on us than we realize. They have taken a major role in making us humans and probably determine the way we run our lives. They emerged with us from our ancestral home in Africa, to spread to the rest of the planet. History is full of the great epidemics of plague, smallpox and anthrax, with the present catastrophe of HIV that is changing the demography of the world in a similar way to its predecessors. We survived because of our genetic variation and immune system and it will be this that will save us again. So fundamental has been the part that disease has played in the world that it has brought about change, just as much as has natural selection. Actually disease has been another force, sometimes acting with natural selection but often in opposition. It continues to have a far more profound effect on all of us than realized, selecting the course of the world just as much as nature has.
