|Description:||This image depicts the interior entrance to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Library, located on the organization’s Roybal Campus, in the Atlanta, Georgia suburb of Decatur. This particular view reveals the contents of some of the bookshelves containing texts that are part of the Library’s “Landmark Collection”, i.e., WA-100 through WC-810. These reference materials are some of the many texts available to Library visitors.|
The CDC collections span the field of public health. Print and electronic resources cover such topics as disease prevention, epidemiology, infectious diseases, global health, chronic diseases, environmental health, injury prevention, and occupational safety and health. The main library is developing a small but growing Landmarks in Public Health collection that includes items of significance to the history of public health. The Pittsburgh library houses an extensive historic collection on mining and mining safety.
