New titles in Health and Medicine, 2014
The Health and Medicine collection explores over 100 formative years (1826-1940s) of medical thought, news, practice, research and professional development in Canada, ranging from medical textbooks and treatises to public health brochures and promotional literature.
This latest installment of medical periodicals enhances access to important primary sources for students and scholars of Canadian medical history, including titles from Western Canada, Quebec, and the Maritimes.
About the collection
The early history of medicine in Canada is as much the story of evolving culture and society as it is the history of medical and scientific discovery. Students of public policy, law, and related fields may wish to consult court records, hospital and university reports, and public health decrees; social scientists interested in comparative health care practice will also find the medical culture of the past well represented.
Digitization is ongoing; numerous specialty works on pediatric and mental health, dentistry, public health and disease control, and veterinary practice have been selected for digitization and easy online access.
