NLM Creates “Directory of History of Medicine Collections” Database

A new National Library of Medicine online resource is a goldmine for scholars and people interested in the history of health sciences.

NLM created the Directory of History of Medicine Collections database. It has information about history of health sciences collections worldwide. Users can search by category, type and name of organization, state/province, country, and individual collection subject strengths.

Libraries, archives, and museums whose collections include holdings in the history of medicine and health sciences are invited to become part of the Directory. For more information, go to Directory page and click on  “About the Directory”.
