From the GMR: NLM's 'Digital Collections'

NLM Launches "Digital Collections," a Repository for Access to and Preservation of Digitized Biomedical Resources

http://www.nlm.nih.gov/news/digital_collections.html

Digital Collections is the National Library of Medicine's free online archive of biomedical books and videos. All the content in Digital Collections is in the public domain and freely available worldwide. Digital Collections provides unique access to NLM's rich, historical
resources.

Digital Collections uses a suite of open source and NLM-created software.

Two collections start us off:
* Cholera Online: A Modern Pandemic in Text and Images
* Films and Videos (administered by the Historical Audiovisuals Program)

Enjoy,
Holly.
