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 through online databases and more than 3000 electronic journals, directories and books.

Our expert staff can procure items not found in our collection through interlibrary loan, conduct database searches and systematic reviews, and offer database search training.

Additional information about Health Sciences Library services is available at or 416-864-5059. The library is located on the third floor of the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute (LKSKI), next to the bridge. Its hours of operation are Monday to Friday, 10:00AM to 4:00PM. Staff with a St. Michael’s Hospital ID badge may access the library within the LKSKI after 4:00PM and on weekends. Use the doors next to the computer lab, across from the elevators, to enter the library after hours.

Staff and students can remotely access the library at any time by following the Off-Site Access guidelines.
