The Leslie and Irene Dubé Health Sciences Library

In 2013, the existing Health Sciences library collection and staff moved into its new quarters, the Leslie and Irene Dubé Health Sciences Library, in the E-wing of the Health Sciences Building. The library is an enhanced resource for all university faculty, staff and students, particularly those studying and researching in health sciences and related disciplines.

The library’s collections include:

  • over 50,000 print and a rapidly growing number of full–text electronic books
  • approximately 100 print and 5,000 electronic journal titles
  • specialized print book collections such as the Baltzan Medical Canadiana, the Brodie History of Medicine, the Abram Hoffer Orthomolecular collection
  • key health sciences online databases including: Medline, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, CINAHL, IPA, AMED, SPORTDiscus

This state-of-the-art library, spanning three floors, has a compact storage system for print books and journals and 23 bookable group/study rooms to support collaborative work and quiet study. Although an increasing number of library materials can be accessed in electronic format from almost anywhere, the Leslie and Irene Dubé Health Sciences Library provides more, and more relevant, space for the interprofessional collaboration activities that are becoming increasingly important in the health sciences.

The Leslie and Irene Dubé Health Sciences Library is also home to SHIRP (Saskatchewan Health Information Resources Partnership), an online library of health information resources for health professionals in Saskatchewan.
