A major renovation of the McIntyre Medical Building’s HVAC infrastructure is underway. This project, funded through the Knowledge Infrastructure Program, involves extensive roof work directly above the Osler Library off the History of Medicine as well as a replacement of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems throughout the Library and the McIntyre Building.

In order to protect the Osler collection, the rare and circulating collections from the Osler Library of the History of Medicine have been relocated to secure, environmentally controlled storage area. The Library and the collection is now estimated to be available at the start of the Winter Semester in January 2015.

Some rare material has been relocated to Rare Books and Special Collections, and a limited number of circulated books are available as well.  Please check the catalogue for availability.

Material may be requested through Interlibrary Loans. Osler staff members will also help to find alternative material.

Please note that the Osler Library continues to offer other services to researchers and students during the whole renovation , including reference and course support.

For more information or assistance please call 514-398-4475 ext. 09873 or email osler [dot] library [at] mcgill [dot] ca.
