This page is designed to assist students in the History of Medicine class in finding resources on medical biography. Below we recommend:
Please let us know if you think we should add something. Your suggestions are invaluable to us. And as always, ask a librarian for assistance. We are here to help you.
There is a feature in PubMed whereby you can search for "personal name as subject." Following along with our Freud example you could search it this way:
freud s[ps] <-- square brackets around the field label ps (personal name as subject)
Note that many of the books listed below begin with the call number "WZ." Browsing in these areas is recommended! The books may be downstairs in our "Main Collection," around the stairwell in "Medical Classics," in "Reference," or at the Access Services Desk in "Reserve."
Search for ebooks in the Ebooks Portal. Use the dropdown menu next to the search box to indicate "Title Contains All Words," and enter the name of the historical figure.
Searching the name directly in our ebrary database will allow you to refine your search, and may produce more results because this database searches inside the text of its ebooks.
