You are here

If you spent time in the Library during your time at Queen’s, you will probably have fond memories of your time studying here, perhaps especially of the Upper Library.

We understand that Old Members like to relive their time in the Library and you are welcome to come and visit during staffed hours. For more information on visiting the Library and bringing guests, please view our library access page.

Closed periods 2017

In order to move collections into our new library building The Queen’s College Library will be completely closed to all outside readers and visitors from Monday 20 March until Wednesday 5 April 2017 inclusive. After 5 April we hope to provide limited access to the special collections but please be aware that this date may change. Normal access should be possible during Trinity Term but the whole library will then be completely closed for most of the Long Vacation (July, August and part of September) in order to move the remaining collections. We apologise in advance for the inconvenience this will cause.
