SMH Health Sciences Library

At the Health Sciences Library, traditional collections blend with the digital world and expert services to support St. Michael’s mission of innovative patient care, teaching and research. Here you can find health information and research resources through online databases and more than 3000 electronic journals, online tools and books.


Our expert staff can assist you to conduct literature searches, offer database search training, conduct systematic reviews, and procure items not found in our collection (interlibrary loan).


The library offers excellent on-demand and live workshops on topics including time management tools, tips for presentations, infographic design tools, and managing literature. For information and a listing of all Library Workshops, click here.
