Wellcome Library: UPDATE

I just saw Craig Hanson’s post on the update on the well-being of the Wellcome Library. It made me feel a tiny bit better, but I admit my worries about the future of the history of medicine is still shaky (I am also disappointed I won’t be attending “The Future of Medical History” conference). According to Simon Chaplin, the Head of the Wellcome Library,

I’m happy to say that the decision about the Centre hasn’t raised any questions about the library — our position is very secure. We’re about to embark on a big project to put more of our collections online – the Trust has earmarked four million pounds for this over the next two years, with up to another sixteen million pounds available once the project is up and running.

For Chaplin’s full letter, visit Hanson’s full post on his blog, Enfliade.
