The various collections of the History & Special Collections Division support the study of the history of medicine and biology. Collections consist of books, journals, manuscript, prints, portraits, and medical artifacts. For further assistance in locating manuscripts, prints, portraits, or other artifacts, please inquire in the division.
The History & Special Collections division of UCLA's Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library uses this site to distribute information about library projects, collections, and resources. The site offers several online exhibits on topics including medicinal spices, bloodletting, Charles Darwin, and others. The Library houses many special collections, and the contents of these are described in some detail, but they are not searchable. The site also provides links to other online resources such as the National Library of Medicine and the Surgeon-General's Office's online catalogs.
