NLM History of Medicine and Graphic Medicine Websites Receive Awards

Posted by on May 15th, 2018 Posted in: Announcements, Communications Tools, NLM Resources


Two National Library of Medicine websites have been honored with 2018 Communicator Awards from the Academy of Interactive & Visual Arts (AIVA), an assembly of professionals from various disciplines of the visual arts dedicated to embracing progress and the evolving nature of traditional and interactive media. In the award category for government websites, the website for the National Library of Medicine exhibition Graphic Medicine: Ill-Conceived and Well-Drawn! earned an award of excellence, and the website for the History of Medicine Division of the National Library of Medicine earned an award of distinction. Link Studio, an interactive design and medical illustration company, designed both websites in collaboration with National Library of Medicine staff.

The Exhibition Program of the National Library of Medicine creates lively and informative exhibitions and educational resources that enhance awareness of and appreciation for the collections of the National Library of Medicine. This most recent exhibition, Graphic Medicine: Ill-Conceived and Well-Drawn!, explores the emerging genre of medical literature that combines personal narratives and the comic medium. The special display on which the website is based, can be seen in the NLM’s History of Medicine Division reading room through January 3, 2019. The traveling adaptation of Graphic Medicine can be seen in libraries across the country. The History of Medicine Division of the National Library of Medicine collects, preserves, makes available, and interprets for diverse audiences one of the world’s richest collections of historical material related to health and disease. The website provides information about and access to the Library’s historical collections which span ten centuries, encompass a variety of digital and physical formats, and originate from nearly every part of the globe.
