Bernard Becker Medical Library has maintained a collection of rare medical texts devoted to scholarship and teaching since 1912. The rare book program developed considerably over the past century, and the Library now holds nine distinct Rare Book Collections totaling approximately 23,000 books and journals. The collections are open to the medical community, historians, and to the general public. The collections’ strengths include ophthalmology, neurology, anatomy, ENT, dentistry, obstetrics and gynecology.
