We are excited to welcome nine UK research library partners to the UK
Medical Heritage Library project. These libraries will be making their
historic collections available for digitisation alongside the Wellcome
Library’s own 19th century works. *They make up the bulk of the 15 million
page goal* made possible by funding from the Higher Education and Funding
Council for England and Jisc.
Relevant works will be selected by the partner libraries from their
historic book and pamphlet collections, representing a broad selection of
works from across medicine, health, and related subjects. *The Internet
Archive will carry out all the digitisation work in a brand new scanning
centre here at the Wellcome Library that will accommodate well over 2,000
items per month at peak times.*
