Inspiring innovation from tradition

Digital Texts

From the ancient documents in the Ancient Medical Library researchers in the Institute create a unique digital collection of texts: the Art of Healing Collection. Scholars decipher and digitize the texts of the ancient books in the original language, and transform them into machine-readable files stored on computer that will be accessible worldwide in open access via the Internet.
