During the summer we do have slightly more limited opening hours to cover staff leave and training. However, there are lots of online history of medicine resources that can still be accessed, even when you are not in the library. Here are some of our favourites.
Online resources – for University members
There are a wealth of online resources that can be accessed on and off campus. University members can access Oxford’s journal and database subscriptions via OxLIP+ and can search for ebooks on the SOLO library catalogue (limit search results to online resources only).
Online resources – free access for all
There are also a wealth of free online resources that University members and non-members alike can access. Search for primary sources in the Medical Heritage Library, which includes over 10000 digitised rare books. Example titles include an 1880 printing of Culpeper’s Complete Herbal and Hunter’s Lectures on the Principles of Surgery.
The Bibliotheque Numerique Medica is another fascinating digital library. It includes profiles and digitised works by figures such as Ambroise Pare and Felix Vicq-d’Azyr and themed sections on medical specialities such as dermatology and veterinary medicine as well as many more.
This week there have also been a number of interesting new blogs and podcasts. Here are our top 3:
