Literature, Arts, and Medicine Database

NYU School of Medicine maintains a quite unique, fascinating free database called Literature, Arts, and Medicine. The “About” section of the database describes itself as an “annotated multimedia listing of prose, poetry, film, video and art that was developed to be a dynamic, accessible, comprehensive resource for teaching and research in MEDICAL HUMANITIES, and for use in health/pre-health, graduate and undergraduate liberal arts and social science settings.”

It’s really useful for both students of these subjects as well as librarians/professors looking for teaching resources.  Site visitors can search for information by annotation, people search, keyword (topic), annotator, and a general free text search.

The site’s maintainers are meticulous about updating it – they post new announcements most days of the week, it seems!
