An Index to the Maritime Medical News, 1888-1910 is now complete and available on the Dalhousie Libraries website. The content in the Maritime Medical News is a key resource for those interested in or doing research in the history of medicine or health generally in the Maritime Provinces. This index complements the Index to the Nova Scotia Medical Bulletin completed earlier, also found on the Libraries website, so that the medical historian now has a very detailed index to the rich content found in these two publications covering more than a century, from 1888-1993.
These indexes were created largely through the efforts of Rachel Green, a member of the Medical Society of Nova Scotia, under the guidance of Dr. Allan Marble, Chairman of the Medical History Society of Nova Scotia. The project coordinator was Tim Ruggles, Librarian at the Kellogg Health Sciences Library. This project was funded by the Kellogg Health Sciences Library
The content of the full text of the Maritime Medical News is freely available on the web at the Canadiana.org website. A project is currently underway to digitize the content of the Nova Scotia Medical Bulletin.
