My latest column has been published in the Notices of the American Mathematical Society. The topic is the MathSciNet for Developing Countries Program, or “MDC”, which was a topic in an earlier post about the program, with a focus on Uzbekistan. That post was inspired by Scott Hershberger’s piece on the AMS web site. The column has more detail than the blog post. It also benefitted from some helpful editing from the editorial board of the Notices, especially from Erica Flapan, the Chief Editor.
At the end of the article is some information about how you can donate to a fund that supports the program, which I am happy to repeat here. There are three ways you can donate to the MDC Fund: on the AMS website here, by sending a check to the AMS Development Department (address below) and instructing the AMS to direct the gift to the MDC Fund, or by calling the Development Office at +1 (401) 455-4126.
The mailing address for the Development Office is:
