About this Guide

This guide will help you find relevant databases, books, journals, websites and specialist resources for your research in medicine. Please explore the tabs along the top for tips on finding specific types of resources.

The guide is always a work in progress, so we welcome suggestions for additional content.

Medical Heritage Library

Search and view the collection of over 66,000 digitised European medical publications from the nineteenth century. The UK Medical Heritage Library is making the 19th century history of medicine freely available to all.

“A £1m project to digitise more than 15 million pages of 19th century medical texts has just finished and the material is now available online for free. It has taken three years to convert these historic published works for use in the 21st century by learners, teachers and researchers. Covering much more than just medical sciences, this enormous library of text and images encompasses consumer health, sport and fitness, diet and nutrition, along with some weird and wonderful historical medical practices such as phrenology and hydrotherapy. The project was jointly funded by education technology solutions not-for-profit, Jisc, and Wellcome Library,  which contributed its entire 19th century collection, along with content from nine partner institutions. As a collective, this will make a valuable resource for the exploration of medical humanities. The aim has been to create a comprehensive online resource for the history of medicine and related sciences, which significantly increases the availability of digitised text for teaching, learning and research.”

More information is available here, and the collection is available here.
