The Woodward Library, originally the Biomedical Branch Library, was first established in 1952. The Woodward Library itself was built and opened in 1964, and has been expanded and refurbished several times since, including creation of a consortium, called the UBC Life Sciences Libraries, that also includes the Biomedical Branch Library, Eric Hamber Library, and St Paul's Hospital Library.
