Beginning today, and continuing until the end of next week we will be making some changes to the shelves on the second floor of Stauffer Library. We are working to keep disruptions to a minimum, but there will be some construction noise until the end of next week. For those looking for silent study, we would recommend that you consider making use of some of our other great Library spaces. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we make changes to serve you better.
For more information on the Library and Archives Master Plan, please see the LAMP website.
We are pleased to share with you the launch of our new website. After months of planning and hard work, we are delighted to announce the official launch on July 27, 2016!
Our goal with this new website is to provide our visitors with the same great services and resources, through a more modern, accessible, and mobile-friendly site.
Beginning on July 27 2016, you will find the new website at our current location at library.queensu.ca.

This email requests a response that users should recognize as a phishing attempt, and may be similar to this example that was reported recently:
