Index of Medieval Medical Images
Index of Medieval Medical Images is a really cool site. It is a database of medieval manuscript images with medical components held in North American collections. This database was created by the Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library at UCLA.
From the site:
The Index of Medieval Medical Images project began in 1988 and aimed to describe and index the content of all medieval manuscript images (up to the year 1500) with medical components held in North American collections. The goal of this 2001 pilot project was to make a substantial sample of the images and descriptions available via a searchable database on the Web.
