Studying? Catching up with Friends? The Library has everything you need


Why you should head to the Library

The Queen Mary Library website contains essential information on study facilities and learning resources available to Queen Mary students. You can book a group study room, check PC availability, renew loans, top up your library credit and pay for printing and photocopying. The website is also a gateway to a wealth of specialist resources (eg, books, journals, databases, patents, statistics).

Students in the Library

The Library can help you find information on specific topics and offers services to support you with your research whether you are a taught student or a research student. The Study Skills Collection provides resources to help  you develop key skills.

The Library is also home to Queen Mary Archives. The Archives holds institutional and personal archives as well as rare prints, dating from the 17th century to the present day, providing evidence for research in the arts, humanities and social sciences.
