About the History of Medicine Collection

The History of Medicine Collection is located on the third floor of the Ruth Lilly Medical Library, Room 307 of the IB building on the IU School of Medicine's Indianapolis campus. Thanks to a generous gift in 2015, the newly remodeled room was named for Dr. Leo J. McCarthy, M.D., Professor Emeritus of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and former Director of Transfusion Medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine.

The History of Medicine Collection is open by appointment only, Monday-Friday between 10am and 4pm (excepting holidays when the library is closed). Research appointments and classes can be scheduled by emailing medlref@iu.edu. Please contact us at least one business day in advance of your proposed visit and inform us of your research topic and/or which materials you would like to view.
