Medical Heritage Library - Historical Medical Documents Online

The National Library of Medicine is a partner with several leading medical libraries in digitizing over 10,000 rare medical books. The mission of the Medical Heritage Library is to promote "free and open access to quality historical resources in medicine. Our goal is to provide the means by which readers and scholars across a multitude of disciplines can examine the interrelated nature of medicine and society, both to inform contemporary medicine and strengthen understanding of the world in which we live." This Medical Heritage Library can be searched through its section on the Internet Archive and updates and features are highlighted through its newsletter.
