The Nucleo de Informacao em Historia das Ciencias Biomedicas e da Saude
was created by the Departamento de Arquivo e Documentacao of the Casa de
Oswaldo Cruz . It consists of a system of information that collects data
institutions, researchers and research groups in the fields of History
Biomedical Sciences and History of Health. Conceived as a network, the
Nucleo stimulates the exchange of information between its participants.
Access through the Internet is available.
The Servico de Disseminacao Seletiva de Informacoes (SDI) stands out
among the services developed by the Nucleo. It provides the researcher
with information collected in the bibliographic databases and in the
archives of the Casa de Oswaldo Cruz, which are considered as the most
extensive collection available in the country on the History of Public
Health and Biomedical Sciences in Latin America (especially Brazil) and
the Caribbean. The archives comprise textual and audiovisual
documentation from the late XIXth century up to now.
Besides the SDI, other services are also available such as: "Boletim de
Trabalhos"- report on the academic production and on research projects
undertaken by researchers; "Informe Nucleo" – information on discussion
lists, awards, publications and labor market; "Agenda de Eventos"-
schedule of events such as Seminaries, Symposia and Congresses.
If you want to be a member of the Nucleo and to profit from free
available, not only receiving but also providing information on papers
projects of research, please contact us through one of the addresses

We look forward your participation,
