Databases and Libraries
The Health Sciences Library (HSL) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The North Carolina History of Health Digital Collection, part of the Medical Heritage Library, is a digital curation collaborative among some of the world’s leading medical libraries that promotes free and open access to quality historical resources in medicine. Its 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 through the Internet Archive.
The Literature, Arts and Medicine Database (LitMed) is a collection of literature, fine art, visual art and performing art annotations created as a dynamic, comprehensive resource for scholars, educators, students, patients, and others interested in medical humanities. It was created by faculty of the New York University School of Medicine in 1993. The annotations are written by an invited editorial board of scholars from all over North America.
A curricular resource for medical/health humanities started by the Health Humanities Consortium in collaboration with the Medical Futures Lab at Rice University.
