Russian history of medicine

For those interested in the history of medicine in Russia, the US National Library of Medicine has thousands of historical items in Russian, and we undertook a project to catalog as many of them as we could in the 2000s (see: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/news/russian_holdings_cataloged.html).

A good way to find them quickly in our online catalog, http://locatorplus.gov, is by performing a key-word search using the string HMDRUS. You will get over 5,000 results, the huge majority of them dating before 1917.
