Index of Medieval Medical Images

Images from medieval medical manuscripts held by major libraries - including the National Library of Medicine, Rosenbach Museum and Library, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), University of Vermont, and Yale University - make up the Index of Medieval Medical Images. The indexing project began in 1988, and in 2001, a pilot project was started to digitize about 500 images and make them available online. To start, click on "Search Images". We found browsing to be the most productive way to begin searching, as it makes it possible to select search terms such as subject and image type, date and country of origin. Once familiar with the database, keyword and advanced searches are also fruitful. Another useful tool "My Virtual Collection" allows users to add notes to images and save them - creating their own collection, users can then choose to email their personal collection to themselves, students, or colleagues.
