Preserving health sciences materials is an important part of the National Library of Medicine‘s (NLM) mission.  In addition to its own large collections, the NLM has created a directory of historical materials to highlight unique collections at other institutions and to provide contact information to researchers wishing to access them.  The NLM has asked its Regional Medical Libraries to identify collections in each region that should be included in the Directory of History of Medicine Collections.  The collections described in this Directory database provide research and reference services to scholars interested in the history of the health sciences.  Some of the subjects include: dentistry, veterinary medicine, nursing, military medicine, and pharmacy.

Here’s where you come in!  We are asking organizations throughout our Network to participate in this effort by filling out a questionnaire, telling us whether they have relevant collections, or know of relevant collections in the Pacific Northwest.  Please go to this link to answer the brief  (4 question) online questionnaire – http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/N3QKT67.  Thank you  for your participation!

Email Gail Kouame or Cathy Burroughs at the Regional Medical Library if you have questions or want to share relevant information about this effort.

Office phone: 206-543-8262 or 1-800-338-7657.
