Queen's Library Collections

Queen's Library subscribes to over 650 specialized databases and article indexes, several hundred thousand electronic books, 80,000 electronic journals and newspapers, and has well over 2 million physical (non-electronic) items including over 1.65 million books.

Borrowing from Libraries Beyond Queen's

We have services to get you the materials you need from other university libraries, and from any of our locations across campus. You can request print monographs that Queen's Library doesn't own from within Omni, or if our copy is signed out, if one of our Omni partner libraries has the book you need. You can also request to borrow items from other university libraries outside of our Omni partner network. This service, known as Interlibrary Loan, is available for current Queen’s students, faculty, and staff.  For more information, refer to the library's information page on Requesting Materials.
