Welcome to the University of Manitoba

 

The library website has a lot of useful information and resources, but it can be overwhelming. This page gathers resources that are particularly useful for you in your first year of study. 

Help is available when you have questions. Contact the Neil John Maclean Health Sciences Library at 204-789-3342, or email the liaison librarian for Nursing, Christine Neilson.

There are several libraries on campus, and you are free to use any of them that you like - just be sure to check the open hours before you go, because they may vary by library.
