The Index of Medieval Medical Images (IMMI) and the Graphic IMMI

The Index of Medieval Medical Images (IMMI) was a project funded by the National Library of Medicine and by The Ahmanson Foundation. The mission of the IMMI project was to describe and index the contents of all medieval manuscript images with medical components presently held in North American collections.
The Graphic IMMI is a cooperative project between the Medical History Division of the David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA and the History & Special Collections Division of the Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library, UCLA.
