History of Medicine
Join us in exploring the depth, diversity, and richness of NLM's collections with a selection of online exhibits highlighting America's records in health and medicine.
The National Library of Medicine's History of Medicine Division collects, preserves, interprets, and presents materials documenting the history of medicine in all time periods and cultures. Our staff provides public access to manuscripts, books, photographs, films, and other historical resources. We also promote, conduct, and facilitate scholarly research and public education through seminars, lectures, exhibitions, film programs, Web sites, databases, publications, catalogues, and research guides.
