Digitize the NEMSM Collection
Making EMS history available to the world
Help the National EMS Museum scan, archive and make available to researchers, Thom Dick's collection of EMS journals, magazines, and other historical documents and photos. We are grateful to Thom and his family for donating the material to the Museum, now we have to make it accessible for everyone to use and enjoy!
We will start our project with digitizing the full run of JEMS magazines and set up a digital research library at the National EMS Museum (this will allow researchers all over the world to research EMS history!) in January 2021, but we will need your help to spreading the word and collecting donations so that we can keep up this project as we have thousands of scans to do, not to mention our other 20 collections of historic documents, pictures and films.
After we finish Thom's collection, we will continue to digitize the 50 big boxes of archival material in the National EMS Museum's collection including resources from the To the Rescue Museum and other donations over the last 15 years and build out our research library with lots of interesting collections. You can view the early phases of our Digital Research Center at emsmuseum.org/archives
Please help us save your history and share it with the world!
Thank you for your support.
