About the library

The Dentistry Library holds the largest dental collection in Canada. With over 30,000 volumes, this collection covers dentistry and oral health. The library was established in 1897 to support the Royal College of Dental Surgeons’ Program. In addition to the regular holdings, in 1925 a bequest commemorating alumnus Dr. Harry R Abbott’s memory was established and has been used to create a special collection. The resources and services currently support the Faculty of Dentistry’s undergraduate and graduate programs. Staff at the library provide group and one-on-one consultations on advanced searching for dental and oral health topics.

Collection strengths

All holdings are listed in the University of Toronto Library catalogue.
