Wellcome Adds Historical Medical Database to Library

By Africa S. Hands

From Wellcome Library blog:

We are pleased to announce access to the online database Popular Medicine in America, 1800-1900 in the Library. This fascinating collection uses a variety of different sources from trade cards to advertising ephemera to explore material aimed at the public rather than the medical professional.
