MedHist, the gateway for history of medicine on the Internet has now been running for two years. MedHist now describes and indexes over 900 Internet resources covering all aspects of the history of health and development of medical knowledge. This resource is aimed principally at students and staff working within the further and higher education sectors, and also at anyone with a general interest in the subject area.
MedHist provides links and detailed descriptions of quality websites that are freely accessible over the Internet. Resources can be located through MedHist's search and browse features which include a selection of subject headings and personal names. Subject areas cover an extensive range from alchemy and bloodletting to the historical aspects of genetics and psychology.
MedHist also incorporates the MedHist Events Database which was launched in 2003 and provides an electronic calendar listing national and international conferences, workshops and seminars relating to the history of medicine and allied sciences.
The gateway is developed and managed by the Wellcome Library for the History and Understanding of Medicine in affiliation with the BIOME life sciences hub team at the University of Nottingham and the Resource Discovery Network (RDN),
