Description: The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is proud to announce the forthcoming publication, on June 26, 2017, of a new, illustrated history of its development, from the early 19th century through the late 20th century. Co-edited by Jeffrey S. Reznick, PhD, and Kenneth M. Koyle, chief and deputy chief of the NLM History of Medicine Division, and incorporating the research, writing, and technical expertise of staff from across the Library, this new book appears in the popular series Images of America, by Arcadia Publishing. A hardback version of the book is available from booksellers, and an electronic version of the complete book, including the 170+ black-and-white images which appear in it, will be freely available via NLM Digital Collections beginning June 26.

Many individuals have written about the National Library of Medicine and its origins as the Library of the Office of the U.S. Army Surgeon General. However, this book is unlike previous publications because it introduces the history of the Library primarily through images from its own rich collections, along with a handful of other images from the collections of the National Archives, the National Museum of Health and Medicine, the Smithsonian Institution Archives, and the Rudolph Matas Library of the Health Sciences at Tulane University. The book reveals the work of generations of visionary leaders and dedicated individuals who experienced the American Civil War, the world wars, the Cold War, and the dawn of the Information Age. This forum will feature contributors to the book who will speak on how the book was envisioned and produced with an eye to creating an accessible and engaging public history of the NLM.
