Giving to the Library
Make a gift online now. Please select "Other" and indicate "Library" in the text box. You may specify what area you would like to support [e.g., Library - collections (subject area); Library - facilities (campus library/subject area); Library - services for students with disabilities; Library - Learning Commons].
Your gift to the Library supports the learning, teaching and research activities of students and faculty in any or all disciplines across the University.
In addition to facilitating access to the scholarly information that is the lifeblood of the academic community, the Library also provides comfortable and secure study space in five modern, well equipped facilities. With interdisciplinary activity on the increase, the Library is more vital to and increasingly integrated with other parts of the University, and is busier than ever. The popularity of the Library is reflected in consistently high student satisfaction surveys; Queen's Library is the only university library in Canada to receive an A+ for student satisfaction in the 2010 Globe & Mail University Report.
The high level of student satisfaction in Queen's Library reflects not only the exceptional level of dedication of our service oriented staff, but also significant investment on the part of the University. The Library's outstanding collections, modern amenities and attractive spaces are heavily utilised during term and exam periods.
Memories are made here - many older alumni fondly recall the "Purple Passion Pit" in Douglas Library, while graduates from the last decade proudly rave about Stauffer. However, heavy use places pressures on the library, requiring frequent maintenance and refurbishment to maintain the high standards achieved through the University's investment. The Library therefore represents a significant opportunity for alumni and friends to advance the University's mission by supporting a heavily utilised service that has broad impact on the Queen's experience.
Please consult the library's gift policy for information on book donations (gifts-in-kind).
