Short description

The project’s long-term aim is to create a national and searchable database of Swedish mediated medical history. The first phase involves cataloguing and utilising the unique material held by the Museum of Medical History in Gothenburg. The database and the material not subject to copyright or confidentiality will be made available via a project website. In addition, digitalising and then storing the original in the National Library of Sweden’s film archive will increase the opportunities to share and provide access to Gothenburg’s unique cultural heritage in the field of medical history.
