National Institutes of Health: History of Medicine

The collections held by the National Institutes of Health on the History of Medicine trace their roots back to the year 1818, when one Dr. Joseph Lovell (the first Surgeon General of the Army) took it upon himself to create a small collection of books, journals, and pamphlets to serve as an onsite reference collection for the Army surgeons under his direction. Currently under the direction of Dr. Elizabeth Fee, the National Library of Medicine: History of Medicine website contains information about utilizing its vast array of documents, and more than a few online features of note. Visitors will find a number of finding aids here for their use, along with links to digital collections, such as "Islamic Manuscripts" and "Medicine in the Americas". Scholars and students alike will appreciate the inclusion of an online syllabus archive, where they may peruse various college-level syllabi by professor, title, institution, or specific subject, such as historiography, environment, and public health.
