The Center for the History of Medicine and Public Health, which includes the Library, promotes the scholarly and public understanding of the history of medicine and public health and the history of the book. Established in 2012, the Center aims to build bridges among an interdisciplinary community of scholars, educators, clinicians, curatorial and conservation professionals, and the general public. The Center’s Library is one of the largest medical collections in the United States open to the general public, to whom it has been available since 1878.
The Library is open Tuesday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. – 4:45 p.m, by appointment. Contact a librarian by calling (212) 822-7315 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. For our historical collection, call (212) 822-7313 or email email@example.com.
