The New York Academy of Medicine Library maintains an extensive collection of polio-related books, reports, health pamphlets and other documents.

More than 250 items result from using the search term <polio>. Included are health pamphlets such as “Progress report to physicians on immunization against poliomyelitis, advance briefing,” produced by Eli Lilly and Company in 1955. Many other polio-related pamphlets and other items are not included in the library's on-line catalog, however. For assistance in identifying materials in the library's extensive collection of polio-related items, contact the library.
