Update on College Library Closure

May 9, 2024

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC has permanently closed its medical library which provided BC physicians with access to resources to support their clinical work, research, teaching, and ongoing learning. However, the services it offered are still available through other providers.

To support physicians, Doctors of BC has compiled a list of alternative library services and resources that includes information provided on the College website and the Canadian Medical Association website. Physicians can use these links to access research articles, e-journals, eBooks, and databases, as well as find similar library services through regional health authority websites.

More information about the closure of the medical library can be found in the College’s FAQs.
