To comply with provincial orders, Archives research by appointment services are temporarily suspended. We will not be booking new appointments at this time. 

Please contact us via email at archives@queensu.ca. Due to limited resources, we cannot conduct detailed research for you and responses may be delayed. However, we can tell you whether we hold records that are relevant to your enquiry or advise you of possible alternative sources. 

Further updates on services are available on the Queen's Library COVID-19 page.



The Queen's University Archives database contains descriptions for most of our holdings, which include records of the University, local businesses and individuals, authors, artists, politicians and many more. Information on how to use this database can be found on our Search Help page. For more information, please also visit our About page.

Our web archives collections are currently available through a separate search interface.
