New “Medical” Collection on New York Heritage: Nickell Snake Oil Collection

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

Nickell Snake Oil Collection, a digital collection from Western New York Library Resources Council member institution Center for Inquiry Libraries, processed by University at Buffalo’s Digital Libraries Spring 2012 class, is now available on New York Heritage:  http://www.nyheritage.org/collections/snake-oil

Although snake oil has become synonymous with medical quackery in today’s parlance, not many are aware of how it came to be so. This digital collection from the Center for Inquiry Libraries’ Dr. Joe Nickell Collection features 27 items relating to the sale of these “patent medicines,” including bottles of snake oil, other cure-all liniments, various advertisements, and even a taxidermic rattlesnake.

New York Heritage is a collaborative project among New York State’s nine Reference and Research Library Resources Councils (NY3Rs): Capital District Library Council; Central New York Library Resources Council; Long Island Library Resources Council; METRO-Metropolitan New York Library Council; Northern New York Library Network; Rochester Regional Library Council; South Central Regional Library Council; Southeastern New York Library Resources Council; and Western New York Library Resources Council.

The NY3Rs, funded by New York State, work with their member institutions (libraries, archives, museums and historical societies) to digitize original research materials and make those materials available for free on the Internet.  The Councils are continually adding new collections to nyheritage.org and actively seek collections to expand the site.
