Help us identify these images

The Duke Medical Center Library & Archives and the Duke Medical Alumni Association are asking you to help enrich our understanding of people, places, and events in the history of the School of Medicine, School of Nursing, and Duke University Hospital. The Archives' collections include a number of photographs which do not have all of the people, events, or dates identified. Accurate documentation will enable us to fill in historical gaps regarding Duke Medicine and to more fully assist researchers who rely upon the Archives for images and information about Duke Medicine's past.

Duke Medicine

For more than 75 years, our community of scholars and students has been devoted to understanding the causes, prevention and treatment of human disease. We are a group of women and men committed to the highest of academic goals - the exploration and dissemination of medical and scientific knowledge.
Ranked in the top ten with schools twice its age, Duke is committed to socially relevant education, translational research, compassionate patient care and global healthcare solutions.
In 2006, the school's more than 2,000 faculty members received more than $388 million in research support from the National Institutes of Health, ranking it second among U.S. medical schools.
Each year, the school receives more than 5000 applications from individuals around the globe wanting to be among the 100 students in each entering class.
As of 2008, more than 450 students are currently working toward their medical degrees. Some of them will stay even longer to become physician-scientists through our Medical Scientist Training Program.

Duke University Medical Center Library & Archives

The Medical Center Library's vision is "The best way to the best information" and that vision must continue to guide the Library in supporting Duke Medicine, including the Schools of Medicine and Nursing, Duke University Hospital and Health System, in their missions. This vision is shared by the Duke Medical Center Archives whose mission is to retain and preserve both institutional records and history for current and future use. This vision requires ensuring access to the best and most relevant information sources and technologies that are easy to use from any location. But in addition to acquiring knowledge-based resources and storing institutional records, the "best way" also requires continued training in the optimum use of the resources for education, research, administrative work, clinical care, and ultimately the reduction of medical errors and the delivery of high quality healthcare.

PAHx Digital Repository

The PA History Digital Collection contains over 3,000 images selected from materials contained in the DUMC Archival and PA History Society's special collections. New images are added as items are selected and processed. The PA History Center Website allow users to search the online repositories of digital images of articles, reports, photographs, biographies, artifact and other memorabilia associated with the history of the physician assistant profession. Developed and maintained by the Society for the Preservation of PA History and the DUMC Library & Archives, the digital archival collection is intended to be used only for academic, research and literary purposes. Please read the Terms of Use prior to accessing the collection.
Each item in our Digital Collection has a unique identity number with accompanying metadata providing details about the item including standard, searchable database fields (title, subject, date, creator, etc.). We want our users to have a genuine and authentic experience when viewing the online collection. We recognize that looking at material online is not the same as holding the original in your hands, but it helps protect, provide easy retrieval and repeated use of items without damage - one of our goals for digitizing the collection. Some items may be missing metadata information. If you have knowledge of any missing information, please let us know so that we can provide the most accurate and abundant information possible.
The original searchable database was created with July 2002 grant funding from the State Library of North Carolina, Exploring Cultural Heritage Online Digitization Grants. Reginald Carter (Director of the PA History Office) and Thomas Clark (Special Collection Project Manager) to work with Pat Thibodeau (Associate Dean for Library Services), Charlie Lackey (Head of Cataloging Department), Russell Koonts (Archivist) and other members of the library staff organized, cataloged, created metadata and digitized selected items from a collection of materials housed in the DUMC archives. Additional funding from the Josiah Charles Trent Memorial Foundation, Inc. allowed for further database augmentation. The Physician Assistant History Digital Collection was moved to MeDSpace in February 2008.

Hyperbaric Medicine

A collection of documents and information resources on hyerbaric medicine contributed by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine Society and other national and international groups, and digitized and developed by the Rubicon Foundation, a non-profit organization undertaking projects that contribute to the expansion of human understanding.
The Rubicon Research Repository, which focuses on Diving and Environmental Physiology Research, is the major contributor to this community.
