"The Gerstein Science Information Centre is located at 9 Kings College Circle on the University of Toronto campus. The library originally existed as the main University of Toronto library, and maintained this status from 1892 to 1973. In 1973 the humanities and social sciences materials were moved to the then newly built Robarts Library, and the remaining collection was divided between the undergraduate Sigmund Samuel Library and the Science and Medicine Library. In 1997, the Science and Medicine Library was renamed the Gerstein Science Information Centre after a significant donation from benefactor the Frank Gerstein Charitable Foundation." from Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerstein_Science_Information_Centre
