Digital Print Collections US National Library of Medicine
The US National Library of Medicine Digital Collections provides access to a large number of books that are essential for a better understanding of various aspects of the history of European medicine. The US National Library of Medicine Digital Collections consists of two sub-directories:
  • Digital Repository Cholera Online: Cholera Online offers access to digitized English language monographs from the History of Medicine collections dating from 1817 to 1900 dealing with the cholera pandemics of that period.
  • Medicine in the Americas: "Medicine in the Americas is a digital library project that makes freely available original works demonstrating the evolution of American medicine from colonial frontier outposts of the 17th century to research hospitals of the 20th century." "Medicine in the Americas is made possible in part through the participation of the National Library of Medicine in the Medical Heritage Library, a digital curation collaborative supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and administered by the Open Knowledge Commons." Users can browse the collections, or use advanced search options. The options include setting limits such as title; author; description; format; language; subject; and publication date. The United States National Library of Medicine (NLM) is a division of the National Institutes of Health operated by the United States federal government.
