Online Naturopathy Library of rare books

The Naturopathic Medicine Historical Collection (NMHC) is a collection of books from the 19th and 20th centuries that exemplify some of the literature of alternative medicine practice in its heyday. This literature is important for historical reasons, and also because much of its content is still relevant for naturopathic physicians and other alternative medicine practitioners today. In this first iteration, the NMHC is a collaborative pilot project of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine library and the Oregon Health & Science University library. The pilot project was funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Library Services and Technology Act.


The materials presented in the NMHC were gathered from the rare book collection of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine and the archives of the Oregon Health & Science University. The collection initially consists of approximately 2,500 page images from 11 different monographs.
