About | Medical Heritage Library March 25, 2013Posted by sandyclaus in History of Medicine, History of Science.
The Medical Heritage Library (MHL), a digital curation collaborative among some of the world’s leading medical libraries, promotes free and open access to quality historical resources in medicine. Our goal is to provide the means by which readers and scholars across a multitude of disciplines can examine the interrelated nature of medicine and society, both to inform contemporary medicine and strengthen understanding of the world in which we live. The MHL’s growing collection of digitized medical rare books, pamphlets, journals, and films number in the tens of thousands, with representative works from each of the past six centuries, all of which are available here through the Internet Archive.
Materials are included in MHL once we have determined, to the best of our knowledge, that the materials are in the public domain under U.S. copyright law, or that the library making the digital version has received permission from the holder(s) of the copyright in the specific materials. If you have questions about the copyright status or permissions regarding a particular item, please contact the relevant digitizing partner via their contact information on the “About” page of this site or the digitizing partner’s Collection page on Internet Archive.
