Art Conservation

Welcome! This is a selective guide of tools to help you do research in Art Conservation.

Where possible, Queen's University Library has what you need through Omni. Discover the features of Omni in our quick search guide, or our Omni Search Tips libguide.

What you can't find at Queen's, try RACER, our interlibrary loan service. Note: RACER requests for e-books or e-articles are presently allowed but requests for print books or scans of print journal articles from other institutions have been temporarily suspended until further notice during COVID-19.

Connect to the proxy server using your NetID and password when accessing the Library's electronic resources from off-campus. You will be prompted when you try to access an electronic resource.
