Planning for an Innovative Partnership: the Medical Heritage Digital Collaborative

Planning meetings and site visits to engage scholars in the planning and selection of materials for the proposed Medical Heritage Digital Collaborative of online history of medicine collections.

The Medical Heritage Digital Collaborative (MHDC) is a partnership of nine institutions striving to connect history of medicine collections in an open access digital environment. This distinguished group of institutions possesses a wealth of physicians’ papers, correspondence, institutional records, books, and images integral to understanding the history and social context of western medicine. These collections have been geographically and technologically isolated from one another, which has presented significant obstacles for researchers in the study of the medical humanities. Digitally linking collections across institutions will increase efficiency in discovery and expand access to under-utilized materials. The proposed planning project will build on the Medical Heritage Library, funded by The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, to create a partnership model for engaging scholars in a multi-institutional collaboration.
