History of Medicine Finding Aids Consortium

The History of Medicine Division of the National Library of Medicine (NLM), the world’s largest medical library and a component of the National Institutes of Health, is pleased to announce the latest release of its History of Medicine Finding Aids Consortium (http://www.nlm.nih.gov/hmd/consortium/index.html). The Consortium now indexes over 3,600 finding aids from 35 institutions. The consortium supports a search-and-discovery tool for archival resources in the health sciences that are described by finding aids and held by various institutions throughout the United States (and one Canadian). As with previous releases the new content crawled consists of finding aids delivered as EAD, PDF and HTML from a diverse institutional cohort.

This site is now included in the MLA Commons Literature, Medicine, & Medical Humanities blogroll.
