About the Health Sciences Libraries|

The Health Sciences Libraries support the teaching, research, and patient care activities of the staff and students of the Faculties of Dentistry, Medicine, and the Schools of Dental Hygiene and Medical Rehabilitation. 


Working with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, the University of Manitoba provides library services to six Winnipeg hospitals.  The Health Sciences Libraries now include the Neil John Maclean Health Sciences Library (Health Sciences Centre), and the hospital libraries of Concordia, Grace, Seven Oaks, St. Boniface, and Victoria.

The WRHA is comprised of health care providers and management professionals who coordinate, manage, deliver, allocate funds to and evaluate health care and health promotion in Winnipeg. While they report through a Board of Directors directly to the Minister of Health, they are equally accountable to the public.
