Need a break? Here are some activities to consider- work on a jigsaw puzzle, write and take encouraging thoughts, read the stress relief pamphlets, create a holiday ornament for yourself or the library’s bookmas tree at the craft station, eat candy canes and there will be more food surprises on Wednesday, December 11. Good luck with your exams! These activities are sponsored by the Queen’s Learning Commons and Bracken Library staff.
Take a break and come to the Seminar Room!
We have puzzles, colouring and other activities to give your brain a break. You can also make holiday cards for charity.
These activities will be available until the last day of exams and they are brought to you by the Queen’s Learning Commons. (http://www.queensu.ca/qlc)

Queen’s University Library is pleased to announce a new option for accessing library resources from off-campus, the Library VPN Service. VPN (Virtual Private Network) provides a secure and stable method of remotely accessing licensed web-based resources. VPN is not a replacement for EZproxy, which will continue to be the Library’s primary off-campus remote access service.
The main difference between VPN and EZproxy is that VPN is tied to a user’s computer or mobile device. After installing the VPN software, users can connect remotely to library resources with a single login. EZproxy, on the other hand, is a web-based system linked to a user’s web browser session. If a user closes their web browser after logging in to EZproxy, the connection will be lost and the user will have to login again when they launch a new browser session or window. For more information, see the comparison of EZproxy and VPN.
Queen’s Engineering and Science faculty may request a personal VPN account by completing an online form. At this time, VPN service is only available to faculty in Health and Life Sciences, Engineering and Science Departments. For more information about the service, please visit the Library’s VPN guide or contact your liaison librarian.
Electronic Enlightenment is a wide-ranging online collection of edited correspondence of the early modern period, linking people across Europe, the Americas and Asia from the early 17th to the mid-19th century, drawn from the best available critical editions.
The Library of Parliament, in collaboration with Canadian.org, is pleased to provide access to the Historical Debates of the Parliament of Canada, a free searchable database of digitized versions of the debates of the Senate and the House of Commons.
Curio.ca provides streaming access to educational content from CBC and Radio-Canada, including documentaries from television and radio, news reports, archival material, stock shots and more — over 5,000 programs and resources. It is a one-stop destination for outstanding Canadian educational content.
