Health Sciences Library

Librarians specializing in Nursing, Health Sciences, Medicine, and Rehabilitation Sciences are available to help you with assignments, research questions and literature searching.

Health Sciences Library


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.

We are available to provide assistance at the Health Sciences Library, at the reference desk or by appointment, as well as in your office.

The Library offers knowledge synthesis services to members of the University of Ottawa community, including students, faculty members, researchers, and staff in health sciences and medicine.
