Philosophy

Queen’s University Library provides subject, course and how to guides to help you connect with the best tools, resources, and strategies for research. This page will help you to identify key starting points for your research in Philosophy.

The Philosophy liaison librarian is available for research consultations and can help you design research strategies, access key databases, effectively use the information resources at Queen's University Library and beyond, and give you advice on how to stay current in your field. Tailored research skill instruction can be provided for specific classes. We also evaluate, purchase and make available teaching and research materials, including books, journals, databases and multimedia resources, to support research in Philosophy.

Intended for use by undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty and other researchers, the subject guide will help you identify and access highly recommended resources for research in the discipline.
