What's Up, Doc?




You can take that in one of two ways, because there's a new government web site from the National Library of Medicine with plenty of "docs" (documents) about the History of Medicine. The site includes information on books, manuscripts, and illustrations relating to medicine over the years, as well as profiles on some famous doctors (such as C. Everett Koop, former Surgeon General of the United States). It also has links to exhibits like the wonderful collection of digitized Historical Anatomies. Go ahead and check it out... it's good for you.
