The Medical Heritage Library (MHL) is a digital curation
collaborative among some of the world’s leading medical libraries. The
collection resides at the Internet Archive (http://www.archive.org/details/medicalheritagelibrary<https://email.med.harvard.edu/OWA/redir.aspx?C=0b3d70a9cb774c3a8b6d3b11a5260a58&URL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.archive.org%2Fdetails%2Fmedicalheritagelibrary>).

The Medical Heritage Library is a content centered digital community
supporting research, education, and dialog that enables the history of
medicine to contribute to a deeper understanding of human health and
society.  MHL serves as the point of access to a valuable body of quality
curated digital materials and to the broader digital and nondigital
holdings of its members. Through active community building and coordinated
content selection, the MHL facilitates much needed discourse around the
contemporary practice of medicine and human health.
