Free eBook from the National Library of Medicine


The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has a new volume, Hidden Treasure: The National Library of Medicine, which celebrates the Library's 175th anniversary.  The item is available in hardcover from Amazon, but the NLM is offering a PDF download for free!

The link directly to the PDF is here; you will be able to view this on a computer (your own or the library's), or download and transfer the file to a PDF-friendly device (eReaders like a Nook, or other devices, like tablet computers).

Michael Sappol, a curator-historian at the National Library of Medicine, "was determined to produce a volume that would show off the richness of the collection, and the curiosities it contains, to distinguish NLM from other libraries."

See the whole article from the National Library of Medicine here.

The volume looks extremely interesting.  Enjoy!
