The Medical Heritage Library announces addition of over 100 titles from Brandeis University Libraries.
The Medical Heritage Library has announced the addition of over 100 titles relating to medical history from the Brandeis University Libraries. Since 2008, the Brandeis library has digitized more than 1700 books and other out-of-copyright works, in partnership with the Boston Library Consortium and the Open Content Alliance, to make them freely accessible online through the Internet Archive. Brandeis Special Collections texts available on the Internet Archive include a number of books related to the history of medicine, including books from the collection of the now-defunct Samuel Gridley Howe Library at the Walter E. Fernald Developmental Center in Waltham. Topics include eugenics, juvenile delinquency, child labor, and criminal psychology
