National Library of Medicine (NLM) Releases New Digital Collection of World War II Books and Pamphlets
The new digital collection is titled, World War 2, 1939-1949.
From a National Library of Medicine “Circulating Now” Blog Post by Crystal Smith:
To date, NLM has scanned over 500 books and pamphlets of the over 1000 selected for this digital collection. All materials digitized for the World War 2 collection were published by federal, state or local governments and consequently are in the public domain.
The World War 2, 1939-1949 collection tells the story (from the history of medicine prospective) of the United States’ involvement during the war and documents many aspects of the day to day activities of military’s medical personnel. It provides a variety of data and insights into the types of diseases they encountered, the living conditions, and the daily life that those brave military personnel experienced.
To help you find items of interest, NLM Digital Collections is keyword searchable with the option to refine your search results by collections, subjects, authors, titles, formats, languages, genre, recently added, and by selecting a date range.
