Library Services

Our vision is to create a library of excellence in support of the needs of a world-class, competitive, academic health sciences centre.

The library facilitates a full range of high quality values-based, patient-centered services that support leadership in seven priority program areas, medical education and research.

While our mandate is to serve the information needs of our professional staff members, patients and family members are also welcome to use our consumer health collection and other resources on site. Computers with web access are available in the libraries for education and research purpose only.

If you require more information or need information in another format, please e-mail or call 416.480.4040 and tell us what you require – we will work with you to meet your needs.
