NLM Digital Collections

On September 27, 2010, the National Library of Medicine® (NLM) launched a new free digital repository, Digital Collections, which is complementary to the PubMed Central® digital archive of electronic journal articles. The repository currently provides rich search, browse and retrieval of monographs and films from the NLM History of Medicine Division. Additional content and other format types will be added over time. Users can perform full text and keyword searching within each collection or across the entire repository.
