UK Medical Heritage Library

13th December 2017

Gooii contracted to deliver UI and data visualisation tools.

UK Medical Heritage Library is a three-year project funded by Jisc and Wellcome Library. It’s a large-scale digitisation of more than 15 million pages of 19th century published works. Wellcome Library is contributing its entire 19th century collection to the UK Medical Heritage Library. This, along with content of the nine partner institutions, will make a valuable resource for the exploration of medical humanities.

The aim has been to create a comprehensive online resource for the history of medicine and related sciences. This will significantly increase the availability of digitised text for teaching, learning and research. Gooii Nottingham worked closely with the Knowledge Integration team throughout the project. Their CIIM middleware presenting a sanitised layer of Elasticsearch data which the UI was built to query and display.

The UK Medical Heritage Library is drawn from university and other research libraries across the UK. The content covers a wide subject area that includes items about medical sciences, consumer health, sport and fitness, diet and nutrition and historical medical practices such as phrenology and hydrotherapy.

The digitisation of this collection significantly extends the digital collections of the Medical Heritage Library, a consortium of American medical libraries.

Gooii data visualisation & UI tools

The project has also developed a set of visualisation tools to support the deeper exploration of the content.

During 2016/17 the project will conduct a number of live ‘idea labs’ to investigate potential tools and data mining techniques to push this innovative project forward in the coming years.
