The Memorial Room area of the Woodward Library consists of two rooms on the main floor of the Woodward Library and a gallery with book shelving above. It houses the W.C. Gibson collection in the history of medicine and science.

The first room is called the Charles Woodward Memorial Room. Dedicated to the pioneer physicians of British Columbia, whose names appear on four bronze plaques above the fireplace, it was the gift of Mr P.A. Woodward in honour of his father, founder of the department store which formerly bore his name.

The Sherrington Room, used for seminars and small meetings, is named for the Nobel Prize winner Sir Charles Scott Sherrington, friend of Dr F.F. Wesbrook, first President of the University of British Columbia.
