Wolseley Memorial Collection

Established in memory of Bernice B. Wolesley, the collection contains books written by physicians and health professionals on topics related to medicine and the humanities. The Wolseley Memorial Collection was originally donated to the Library by the Wolseley family. It includes fiction and non-fiction novels, poetry, biographies and patient memoirs about medical care. The library continues to add titles to the collection by contemporary authors such as Oliver Sacks, Atul Gawande, and Rafael Campo.

The Wolseley Memorial Collection is located in the back of the Library first floor, in a lounge area with comfortable seating and a window wall.
