Web Resources: A Guide to History of Medicine Resources
Here’s a link to a new guide featuring history of medicine resources accessible on the open web.
It was compiled and annotated by Jolie Braun at the Duke University Medical Center Archives and appears in the November 2014 issue (vol. 75 no. 10) of College and Research Libraries News published by ACRL.
From the Introduction:
The history of medicine is a field that draws students and scholars from a diverse range of disciplines: history, philosophy, medicine, and even art history. While there is no shortage of resource lists available on the topic, the goal of this guide is to offer a slightly different scope, and highlights audiovisual collections, podcasts and videos, and blogs. Listed below is a selection of some well-known resources alongside others that are less frequently cited but engaging and valuable.
This article aims to cover history of medicine in its broadest sense.
[Our emphasis] Nearly all of the resources mentioned here are free.
The guide is organized into eight sections:
- Digital image collections
- Digital exhibits
- Audiovisual collections
- Lectures, podcasts, and online classes
- Scholarly journals
- Syllabus and resource lists
