ABOUT THE LIBRARY:

Queen’s University is one of Canada’s leading universities, with an

five physical locations and a strong virtual library serving a community 
of over 21,000 students and 2,400 faculty and researchers in Applied 
Science, Arts & Science, Business, Education, Health Sciences, Law,
