Kellogg Library

The W. K. Kellogg Health Sciences Library holds Dalhousie's biomedical collections. The Kellogg Library provides services to the Faculties of Dentistry, Health Professions and Medicine and serves health professional throughout the Maritime provinces. The print collection and Health Sciences librarian Patrick Ellis can be found in the Chapter House, 5743 University Avenue.

As paper collections are shrinking, the library's collections (Novanet) are becoming increasingly electronic and available 24/7. These collections support and supplement faculty research, curriculum needs and the student laptop/VitalSource initiative.

Reference services

  • Novanet is the comprehensive source of all print and electronic material held by Dalhousie University Libraries.
  • Document Delivery will obtain materials from books and journals not held at Dalhousie.
  • Libguides is the jumping-off point for library resources, providing one-stop access to a variety of databases, electronic journals and electronic books. The Dentistry and Dental Hygiene Libguide focuses particularly on dental resources.
  • citation management software packages (Endnote, Refworks, etc.)

Please note, Novanet is always the most complete of current and lapsed journal subscriptions.
