Hello Preservenw folks!

I hope you are able to help us discover some unique historical health
sciences collections in the Pacific Northwest - see below:

The National Library of Medicine has asked its Regional Medical Libraries to
identify collections in each region that should be included in the Directory
of History of Medicine Collections -
http://wwwcf.nlm.nih.gov/hmddirectory/index.cfm.  The collections described
in this Directory database provide research and reference services to
scholars interested in the history of the health sciences. Some of the
subjects include: dentistry, veterinary medicine, nursing, military
medicine, and pharmacy.

Here’s where you come in!  We are asking organizations throughout the
Pacific Northwest to participate in this effort by filling out a
questionnaire, telling us whether they have relevant collections, or know of
relevant collections in the Pacific Northwest.  Please go to this link to
answer the brief  (4 question) online questionnaire –
http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/N3QKT67.  Thank you for your participation!

Email Gail Kouame - gmarie at uw.edu - or Cathy Burroughs - cburrough at uw.edu -
at the Regional Medical Library if you have questions or want to share
relevant information about this effort.

Office phone: 206-543-8262 or 1-800-338-7657.

Thanks so much!
