Queen's library is a gathering space — both physical and virtual. Not only a place where ideas are explored, concepts are learned and theories are unearthed, but where friends are met, relationships are forged, and community is created. The library is the keystone of campus, a place of inspiration, imagination, and initiative. Above all else, the library is people who make a difference — people who help others learn, think, discover, and do.
Queen’s Library is the top-ranked university library in its category for total holdings with more than 3 million items, including 90,000 electronic full-text journals and newspapers. (Source: 2011 MacLean’s Rankings)
While our collections are extensive, the library also offers services to support the learning experience at Queen’s and help our students succeed. The Queen’s Learning Commons provides writing, learning, and technical skills support, as well as a place to meet and study.
