The Health Sciences Library welcomes St. Michael's Hospital physicians, staff, students and volunteers, and these individuals must have their St. Michael's Hospital Photo ID clearly displayed at all times. The Library is not open to the general public. 


Your St. Michael's Hospital Photo ID is your library card and gives you access to all library resources and those of other libraries through our Interlibrary Loan service.

Loan Periods

  • Books - 4 weeks
  • Journals - 1 week
  • iPads - 1 week


Books and journals may be renewed once if there are no requests by another client. Email or call 416-864-5059 to renew items on your library account.


You may return items to the Information Desk during open hours (8AM to 6PM, Monday to Friday). When the Library is closed, please use the drop-box located across from the east elevators, to the right of the Computer Lab entrance. This drop-box is accessible even when the glass panels enclosing the Library are locked.
