Els pitjors presagis respecte al destí de la biblioteca de l’institut d’història de la medicina i de la ciència “López Piñero” han estat confirmats ahir. Com sabeu, la biblioteca de l’IHMC és una de les més completes dedicades a la història de la ciència, de la medicina i de la tecnologia. Amb més de 10,000 monografies i desenes de revistes especialitzades. Algunes sèries de revistes s’inicien a principis del segle XX i es mantenien sense interrupció fins a l’actualitat. Ja sabeu que moltes d’aquestes revistes i llibres, de contingut molt especialitzat, no són fàcils de trobar a altres biblioteques del nostre entorn . Per això, la biblioteca desenvolupa una activitat de préstec  als investigadors d'altres institucions i acull habitualment a investigadors de diferents països. Al mes de maig de 2014, el CSIC va denunciar el conveni de col·laboració amb la Universitat de València i s’iniciaren els tràmits per tal de clausurar l’Institut “López Piñero”. Es va crear una comissi
