    Images from the NLM History of Medicine Division

The History of Medicine Division <http://www.nlm.nih.gov/hmd/> of the 
National Library of Medicine (NLM) is planning an upgrade to improve 
access to and usage of its /Images from the History of Medicine/ (IHM) 
database, the main online access point to over 70,000 digital images 
from our historical collections.

We invite you to take part in a brief survey at 
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3TV5QD2 so we may better understand your 
current use of IHM and what new features you would wish this resource to 
offer in the future.

This survey has been approved by NLM's Survey Review process and 
responses will be anonymous.

For direct access to IHM: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/hmd/ihm/. For more 
information about IHM, including its contents and development: 

Thank you for your participation.
