This guide was created to provide a starting point for researching topics in the History of Medicine assignments.

Search the Bentley Library

Books are great places to find primary source material. Look in the appendices & exhibits of books to view excerpts of diaries, interviews, facsimiles and more. Library Search also includes a number of Government Documents (primary sources). Look in the bibliographies of books to find citations for more sources of information to explore.

 Here are examples of book search queries:

  • (Drug traffic* OR Drug control) AND "United States"
  • "Opium Trade" AND (Asia or China or Japan)

Here are some additional search tips.

Ebook Collections

By searching the Library Catalog, you will find many of the ebook titles from our collections, but there are a few ebook collections that are not completely included. To make sure you haven't missed anything, we suggest you search them as a database directly. They are:
