York County Hospital Medical Library Committee minute book

Scope and Content

16 January 1810 – 21 January 1861. The volume begins by detailing the formation of the Library and gives extracts from the York County Hospital Rules which relate to the library.


The York County Hospital Library transferred to the York Medical Society in 1890; presumably this minute book came with the books. The York County Hospital Library was the property of the hospital; although intended for its doctors, anyone could use it on payment of a fee. The books were acquired by donation, and by purchase, as recorded in the minutes.
