Find Books

QCAT, the Library Catalogue, is still your best bet for finding a title that you already know.  It the title you seek is The teacher-curriculum encounter: Freeing teachers from the tyranny of texts do a TITLE EXACT search from the Library's home page AFTER you have selected QCAT rather than Summon:

Limit to E-Books

Search either Summon or QCAT if you want to locate e-books on a topic.  In QCAT, change the limiter before or after you search:


In Summon limit to e-books after you retrieve your search results:

If the Title is NOT Available

Ask your Education librarian about the possibility of purchasing a title if you discover a title you'd like to view and it is not available at Queen's.  We work with major ebook distributors who can sometimes activate an ebook within hours of our request.  Even before the title appears in Summon or QCAT (library catalogue) a ProQuest or EBSCO title will be available in the Queen's collection from that distributor.
