From the Wellcome Library:
Pathology, surgery, therapeutics, anatomy, public health – these are some of the top subjects that are covered by the UK Medical Heritage Library (UK-MHL) digitisation project. In July the UK-MHL project reached the halfway point, with over 26,000 titles digitised, resulting in nearly 8 million images. Our goal is to reach 15 million pages in early 2016.
Each of the 10 partner institutions has contributed books and pamphlets from a wide range of medical and health-related areas, but each has a slightly different emphasis – University College London contributed a large number of ophthalmology books and pamphlets, while the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine naturally focuses on public health and tropical diseases. Military medicine is a top subject from both the Royal College of Surgeons of England, and the Royal College of Physicians of London, while cholera is well represented from Glasgow University Library and others.
