About the Digital Collections

These Books and Pamphlets were chosen from the 900+ volume History of Medicine collection housed in the Charles S. Bryan History of Medicine Room, which includes a wide variety of materials of importance to medical, historical, and sociological research.  More digital books on the History of Medicine are available through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Digital Collections.

This project has been funded in whole or in part with Federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. HHS-N-276-2011-00004-C with the University of Maryland Baltimore.
