History of Medicine Research Support

HSLS offers two collections and a variety of services to serve the needs of history of medicine scholars and researchers.

Historical Collections

History of Medicine Collection

Materials are located through the library and may can be checked out or scanned. This circulating collection has also numerous  facsimiles and reprints of important medical texts.

Researchers from other institutions

  • Please request copies/scans of materials via your home institution’s interlibrary loan services.
