National Library of Medicine to digitize “Medical Heritage” works

The US National Library of Medicine is about to begin a new digitization project with a goal of converting its existing collection to digital form. The NLM project is part of an international effort to convert more than 30,000 works from some of the world's leading medical libraries.  When complete, the new content will be freely available online.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
