School of Medicine, the School of Nursing and the School of
Rehabilitation Therapy. In addition, the Bracken Health Sciences
Library serves as the primary library for students, graduates,
faculty and researchers in the Life Sciences departments at Queen's.
Through formal partnerships, Bracken also provides outreach library
services to a number of regional health institutions including the
Hotel Dieu Hospital, Kingston General Hospital, Northumberland Hills
Hospital and Quinte Health Care and their affiliated health
professionals. Bracken Health Sciences Library is a full service
library, responsible for administering the full range of library
functions, including all technical services, information, reference
and education services, and document delivery. Services are provided

team-based organizational model. In September 2005 Bracken Library
was renovated to create the Centre for Health Electronic Education

electronic education centre, which occupies the whole public area on
the main floor of the library. It includes an electronic classroom,
six large group seminar rooms and a number of group meeting spaces,
videoconferencing facilities, computer pods, user-friendly reference,
circulation and document delivery service points as well as librarian
office space. The entire environment is wireless to allow students
and faculty to use laptop computers, tablets or portable computing
devices anywhere within the facility.

18,000 students and 800 faculty with research collections exceeding 7
million items, access to about 16,000 electronic journals and 400
databases, a staff of 160 and a budget exceeding $17 million. A
team-based organization based on the goals of the learning
organization was introduced in 1999 to encourage innovation and
flexibility in meeting the service needs of the Library's users.
