Books

Our Career Advising and Resource Area is exceptional, and it makes sense to use it while you’re here at Queen’s. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Most books can be signed out for two days with a valid Queen’s student card or library card.students in the career information area
  • There’s a label on the cover of each book to indicate if it’s for reference or for loan.
  • All the books are listed in  QCAT, and we’ve included the call numbers for popular books.
  • If you’re not able to come into Career Services, you can use this list to look for the books in libraries or bookstores near you.
