|Description:||Images from the History of Medicine (IHM) is a database of over 70,000 images in the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) historical prints and photographs collection. The collection of portraits, photographs, fine prints, caricatures, genre scenes, posters, and other graphic art illustrates the social and historical aspects of medicine from the Middle Ages to the present. Subjects range from medieval astrology to 19th century slum conditions to World War I hospitals to the international fight against drug abuse and AIDS. Most of the images in the collection are from the earlier time periods, although 20th century images are also included, the majority dating from before World War II.
