Reading list books

The library makes every effort to hold the key texts that are on reading lists for your modules.

If there are books on your module reading list which you cannot find in the Library Search, please let the Library know by filling in our book form or emailing your Subject Librarian.

Books not on reading lists 
The library also considers purchasing suggestions for books which are not on module reading lists. If you'd like to recommend a book for the library collection, please email your Subject Librarian.

Learning Development Service

The Learning Development Service at Queen’s provides academic skills support to undergraduate students. They do this both on-course, as part of taught degree programmes, and via individual one-to-one engagement. Academic skills support offered includes guidance on time management, exam preparation, academic writing, referencing, academic integrity, and research.

They have also designed a Transitions Skills for University package (on Canvas) to support your learning and progress.
