Since its founding, the Dentistry Library had always occupied the same building as the Dentistry School itself. In 2008, the Dentistry Library broke with tradition and merged with the Taubman Medical Library (renamed the Taubman Health Sciences Library in April, 2010) on East Catherine Street. The combined Taubman Health Sciences Library provides information on both contemporary and historical knowledge and practice. However, the collections emphasize the journal literature reflecting the current state of medical knowledge, and this literature is increasingly accessed online. Thus, while the Dentistry collection no longer enjoys close proximity to the Dentistry School, it remains conveniently accessible to researchers near and far.
