Evidence-based decision making requires that everyone, especially health care providers, have access to the best possible information. The mission of the library is to support education, research and informed decision-making throughout the hospital. This is achieved by providing high-quality, integrated, knowledge-based information that enables the hospital community to access existing knowledge, create new knowledge and learn in a way that generates curiosity, collaboration, exceptional care and empowered communities.
Through innovative use of the latest technology, the library ensures that hospital staff have seamless and easy access to the best peer-reviewed literature and online information tools. Professional information specialists work closely with clinical, research and administrative staff to maintain a high standard of academic rigour in the work performed by St. Michael’s staff.
