The New York Academy of Medicine is home to one of the world’s most significant historical libraries in medicine and public health, with over 550,000 volumes including an extensive rare book collection.
The Library fills a unique role in the scholarly and cultural landscape of New York City by making its collections accessible for research and by presenting an engaging roster of public programs integrating medicine with history, the humanities, and the arts through its Center for the History of Medicine and Public Health. Established in 2012, the Center builds bridges among an interdisciplinary community of scholars, educators, clinicians, curatorial and conservation professionals, and the general public.
