The Duke University Medical Center Library & Archives (MCL&A) continues to support research of the past, present and future of hyperbaric medicine. Through a partnership with the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society and other groups, MCL&A has developed a strong collection of hyperbaric medicine materials.
Available collections include:
The first hyperbaric chamber was installed at Duke University in 1963. Since that time, the Duke Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Environmental Physiology has become an internationally recognized center for clinical practice, research and education in hyperbaric medicine. The Duke Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Environmental Physiology is the only hyperbaric facility in North Carolina accredited by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society and serves as the Southeast regional referral center for hyperbaric medicine.
In 2005, the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine Society (UHMS) moved its headquarters to Durham, North Carolina, the home of Duke University. The organization made arrangements to transfer its hyperbaric medicine collections to the Duke University Medical Center Library and Archives, with the understanding that the library and archives would care for these collections and offer their services to all members of the UHMS. For more information on the services available to members of the UHMS at the Duke University Medical Center Library and Archives, see this guide.
