The Circulation desk is located on the ground floor, just inside the main entrance of the library. Visit this desk to check out or return library materials.
Professors will sometimes ask the library to place required course readings on reserve. Reserve materials are available from this desk on short-term loan (ranging from 1 hour to 3 days, depending on the item).
Workstations located throughout the library are networked to shared printer stations. The ground floor printer station (b&w and colour) is located to the right of the Circulation desk.
In order to print or photocopy, you will need a library copy card. Cards can be purchased from the Circulation desk or the copy card dispensers located to the left of the Ground Floor printer stations (beneath the information display screen).
The Engineering & Science Library Information desk is also located on the ground floor to the left of the circulation/reserve desk. Visit this desk for research help and assistance with library searches.
A number of public workstations and study tables are located on the first floor (one floor above entry). These workstations are well-equipped with a variety of software packages frequently used by students and faculty in the sciences and engineering.
Quick stop terminals and b&w printer station can be found to the right of the public workstations. (Colour print jobs may be sent to the ground floor printer.) A scanner is also available for public use at this station.
Just beyond the quick stop terminals, you can find the library's Science Fiction lounge. This quiet corner, stocked with a modest collection of science fiction books, is a great spot for leisurely reading.
Reference materials and Current Periodicals may be found in the library's south wing. This area is located to the right when you enter from the first floor stairway landing.
The south wing also houses several group study rooms, which can be booked online by Queen's students, staff and faculty through the Library website, as well as the library's A/V centre, which is equipped with 2 TVs and DVD players.
The remainder of the library's collections are located in the lower levels - books on floor 4S (three levels below ground), the herbarium collection on 3S (two levels below ground), and periodicals on floors 3S and 2S.
Quiet study space is located on the top floor of Douglas Library, three floors above entry level. The 1923 Reading Room, also known unofficially as the "Harry Potter" room, is located to the right of the stairway landing.
Back on the ground floor, there are two seminar rooms suitable for practicing or delivering presentations. Located behind the Circulation area, these rooms (404, 405) can also be booked through the online booking system.
The library's electronic classroom is also located on the Ground floor, to the left of the main entrance.
