When I request something via the TRC online catalogue, do I get a confirmation?
Where do I park when I come to the TRC?
There are 2 parking spots reserved to use while you are at the TRC. You need a special TRC parking permit available through your Board or directly from the TRC staff. Parking is valid for one hour. Please be considerate towards the many folks using Duncan McArthur Hall, and use this pass ONLY while you are using the TRC.
Are you open evenings and weekends?
Yes. From September to mid-June the TRC is open:
- Monday to Thursday 8:30 am – 7 pm
- Fridays 8:30 am – 5 pm
- Saturdays 12:30 pm – 5 pm
Check the Hours page for holiday hours.
I came to the TRC one night and the building was closed.
For security reasons it has become necessary for the building to be locked after 4:30 pm and on weekends. The MAIN FRONT DOUBLE DOOR at the Union street entrance (south east side of the building) IS OPEN after regular hours.
I just wanted to return a few things and the TRC was closed. Is there a drop box?
Yes. The drop box is located at the front of the building and it is open when the Education Library is closed.
Can I suggest a book / video / novel for the TRC to purchase?
Yes. Acquisition suggestions are welcome. Please provide as much information as possible — title, author, publisher, where you discovered the resource and also, let us know how this resource will be used to help determine quantities needed and packaging.
Does the TRC accept donations?
Yes. Item donations are welcome if they are in good / new condition. Some resources are in greater need than others. If the resources do not fit within the TRC’s collection they are placed on a give- away table for pre-service teachers. Further, if you are planning on making a donation to Queen’s, you can designate the TRC as your department of choice. We greatly appreciate your support !
Financial donations go directly to TRC acquisitions of resources.
I wrote a teacher’s guide for a novel, can I donate it to the TRC?
Yes. We have many guides written by area teachers. They are most welcome.
