This story was corrected on Aug. 29, 2013. An explanation follows the story.
The History of Medicine Division at the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda has started a new blog, Circulating Now, which is intended to encourage exploration of one of the world’s largest medical history collections.
Circulating Now will bring the library’s diverse historical collections to life in new ways for researchers, educators, students and anyone interested in the history of medicine, according to a news release from the library.
Kicking off the blog will be a series of posts that draws on the library’s historical collections associated with the assassination of, and attempts to save, President James A. Garfield in 1881.
The blog is at circulatingnow.nlm.nih.gov.
Explanation: The original version in three instances incorrectly referred to the library as a museum.
