Library's Rare Book Collection at the ISS Museum of Public Health

On 21 April 2017, at the end of the celebrations of ISS foundation's 83rd anniversary, the President of the Italian Republic Sergio Mattarella inaugurated the new Museum of Public Health at the Italian National Institute of Health. The ISS Museum is interactive and uses the latest technologies to guide the visitor through a stimulating educational path.

A section of this Museum is devoted to the ISS Library's Rare Book Collection (XVI-XIX centuries). Part of the exhibition is the White Book, a multimedia product in browseable format consisting of about 300 digital images taken from some of the most beautiful and significant volumes of the collection. It covers the following thematic areas: Mineral waters; Botany and zoology; Chemistry, physics and mathematics; Ancient and modern medicine.

The selection and the bibliographic description of the images is the responsability of the Working Group for the Preservation of the Rare Book Collection of the ISS Library.
