About the Health Sciences Library


  • Teaching - We support the undergraduate and graduate programs by providing teaching sessions included as part of the curriculum. We also provide tailored sessions upon request. Sessions can be hosted in your lab, classroom or office, or in the library's computer classroom. They can be structured around a subject area, course assignment or specific question.
  • Research help - We are available to provide assistance at the Health Sciences Library, at the reference desk or by appointment, as well as in your office.

Contact our team or your librarian for details.
