|The Danish Foundation of the History of Pharmacy launched a new website in Danish in January 2013. An English version will appear in August 2013.
The new website bases on the Danish Collection of the History of Pharmacy at Pharmakon and appears as a virtual pharmaceutical historical museum.
- The objects of the website are
- 1) to present the Danish Collection of the History of Pharmacy with a view to increasing the interest to and the number of visitors in the collection, and
- 2) to promote the knowledge about the operation of the pharmacies and the pharmaceutical industry, as well as the history of medicines in Denmark over the past 100 years.
The people can go visual exploring in the collection and in this way get a general presentation of the collection.
A unique picture bank with almost 1,000 pictures of objects and books from the collection and a detailed description of the collection documents the history of the medicine manufacture from craft to industry.
Further, the website contains a digitalized version of a documentary film, “The old craft of a chemist” from 1994. In addition, the website shows various interactive modules.
The present English version of the website contains fewer modules than the Danish version.
