Lost and Found Policy

Lost items in the Health Sciences Library are transferred to Hamilton Health Sciences Security Services, where all lost and found items for the Health Sciences Centre/McMaster University Medical Centre are kept. Security Services are located on Level Two at the main entrance of the building.

  • Found items are kept in the library for one day only. Items are transferred to Security Services at the end of each day.
  • Clothing items and umbrellas are not sent to Security Services. The library will hold these temporarily. Clothing items not claimed will be donated to charity every month.

Take it to Security Services at the main entrance of the hospital, or drop it off at the library's Service Desk.
