The ICOH specializes in osteopathic historical research up to 1979. Items after this date may be requested through the A.T. Still Memorial Library or your local library. The ICOH staff is happy to request articles for researchers via Interlibrary loan from outside resources. However, while there is no charge for the ordering/processing of such requests, researchers must reimburse the ICOH for any additional third-party charges. (Currently these charges average from $16-50 per article.)
