The Friends of the Rare Book Room

More than 550,000 books, manuscripts, archives, and illustrations form our extraordinary collections. We make our treasures freely available to scholars, researchers, and the general public alike. With their vast reach across medicine, public health, food and cookery, botany, anthropology, and myriad other subjects, our collections trace the development of medicine from its Greek roots through today. This legacy offers invaluable historical insights into health and illness and illuminates today’s critical issues as well. By becoming a Friend of the Rare Book Room you’ll support our public programs and outreach activities; the acquisition, conservation, and cataloguing of remarkable historical materials; and digitization of our key treasures.

As a Friend of the Rare Book Room, you’ll join an engaged and intimate group, passionate about preserving our collections.

Please check back soon for online registration.
