The Health Sciences Library Guides are online tools to support your learning and research.
Explore resources, learn essential research skills
Our guides provide not only expert advice and recommended resources, but also teach valuable skills. You can learn how to differentiate between background and foreground information, the hierarchy of pre-processed information, how to form a PICO question, and more. Our Resources for Evidence-based Practice and our Anatomy guides are popular tools for students across all Health Sciences programs. Would you rather watch a video than read? We’ve got that too, explore our series of online tutorials.

McMaster University is one of several Canadian universities ending its licence agreement with Access Copyright, a copyright collective that provides licences to make copies from print and digital works such as books, magazines, newspapers and journals.
McMaster’s current licence expires on December 31, 2015. The final decision was made by the Provost and Vice-President Academic, in consultation with McMaster’s Copyright Advisory Group, legal counsel, the University Library and other McMaster stakeholders.
The University will continue its commitment to copyright compliance, which is an ongoing legal duty and an integral component of academic integrity. Over the coming weeks, more information will be released around newly developed internal resources which will become available to assist staff and faculty with clearing necessary copyright permissions, to ensure all are aware of their rights and responsibilities under the University’s Fair Dealing Policy and the Copyright Modernization Act (Bill C-11).
