Hospital Library and Archives

The SickKids Hospital Library supports the clinical, research and educational activities of all staff, students and associates of SickKids by providing state-of–the-art access to information.

The Hospital Library is also available to patient families seeking information beyond that which is available at AboutKidsHealth.

Resources include:

  • Health sciences textbooks
  • Health sciences journals
  • Videos and DVDs
  • Photocopiers

SickKids Archives identifies and preserves our historical record, collecting documents and artifacts used or developed by the Hospital, Research Institute and SickKids Foundation over the past 138 years. With 460 linear feet of material, the Archives connects SickKids with its own, and Ontario’s past.

The Archives does not store patient records. Former patients seeking information may contact the Health Records department to request copies of their records. Click here to make a request through the department’s online forms.
