Published since 1969, the Osler Library Newsletter is a forum to discuss the life and writings of Sir William Osler, and more generally, subjects pertaining to the Osler Library and its collections.

The Osler Library of the History of Medicine opened in 1929 and is a major resource centre for historical research in the health sciences and is the international centre for the study of Sir William Osler and the Oslerian tradition.  Initially comprising 8000 titles listed in the Bibliotheca Osleriana, the collection – the finest of its kind in Canada – has grown to around 100,000 works including older, rare materials as well as current books and periodicals about the history of the health sciences and related areas.
