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 (interlibrary loan), conduct database searches, offer database search training and conduct systematic reviews.

For more information contact us at or 416-864-5059. We are located on the third floor of the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute (LKSKI) next to the bridge, and are open Monday to Friday from 8:00AM to 6:00PM. Research Staff with badge access to LKSKI after-hours may access the Library space after 6PM and on weekends using their St. Michael’s Hospital ID badge. To enter the library after-hours, use the doors next to the computer lab, across from the elevators.

Visit our website to learn more about the services and resources available to you. Staff and students may access the library from remote locations by following directions in the For Staff section.

Please note that this is a staff library and is not open to the general public.
