Interesting Site: Index of Medieval Medical Images

Posted in Reference Resources at 10:55 pm by Alexia

Serindipitously found from the Librarians’ Internet Index, the Index of Medieval Medical Images is the product of a project of History & Special Collections, UCLA Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library to make a substantial sample of the images and descriptions available via a searchable database on the Web. Users can search by keywords and browse by Subject. Image Type, Image Date, Image Origin or Manuscript. Not necessarily relevant to the hospital librarian it is nonetheless a great site and fun for those times when you just need a break and wish to see gross pictures from medieval times.
