|Kongress i Istanbul 2015|
The Suleymaniye Library houses the largest collection of Islamic manuscripts both in Turkey and around the world, holding about 70,000 manuscripts and 50,000 books in Ottoman Turkish. The Library possesses a large collection of manuscripts related to science, religion, geography, philosophy, language, and history.
The first museum of the history of pharmacy in Turkey was founded in 1960 by Prof. Dr. Turhan Baytop (1920-2002), former dean and a professor of pharmacognosy at the Istanbul University Faculty of Pharmacy. Baytop’s private collection constituted the core of this museum which, in the course of time, was enriched with donations from pharmacists. Pharmaceutical documents, books, regulations, receipts, specialties, equipment and furniture trace the history of the Ottoman and the Turkish pharmacy as well as pharmacies and pharmacists. Hence this museum reflects the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the time, particularly in Istanbul.
The Herbarium of the Faculty of Pharmacy in Istanbul (ISTE) was founded in 1945 at the Department of Pharmacognosy, then transferred to the Department of Pharmaceutical Botany in 1964. It has a very rich collection of about 110,000 specimens. The collection has been digitalized, and information and images of more than 4,000 specimens are available online.
