Since 1997, the RVH Health Library has been an integral part of RVH's commitment to providing contemporary, evidence-based health information to staff, physicians, patients and visitors across Simcoe County.
Located on the second floor, next to Victoria's Gift Shop near the Atrium Entrance, the library offers a large collection of academic textbooks, medical books, patient-education pamphlets, e-resources, computers and other electronic services, and exam invigilation*.
Library professionals are available to help you conduct literature searches, provide assistance with full-text article retrieval, and locate information on a wide variety of healthcare topics. If you are unable to visit the library, information can be sent electronically.
