ENVIRONMENT:

Queen's University Library comprises five major libraries in well-equipped
facilities. It serves a user community of approximately 18,000 students and
800 faculty with research collections exceeding 7 million items, an
extensive array of electronic resources, a staff of 160 and a budget
exceeding $16 million. A team-based organization based on the goals of the
learning organization was introduced in 1999 to encourage innovation and
flexibility in meeting the service needs of the Library's users.

Stauffer Library serves the teaching and research needs of the
undergraduates, graduates, faculty and researchers in the humanities and
social sciences. Its Documents Unit combines the expertise and resources
of three related areas. The Map and Air Photo Collection houses the
University's primary map collection. It is a rich collection of current and
historical cartographic resources - maps, atlases, air photos, a small book
and journal collection on relevant topics, and a growing body of digital
cartographic resources. The Social Science Data Centre provides access to
a broad range of survey and other statistical data from a wide range of
sources, including Statistics Canada's Data Liberation Initiative (DLI) and
the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research
(ICPSR). Government Documents is a depository library for Canadian
federal, Ontario provincial, United Nations and European Union documents,
and also collects from other provinces and territories, municipalities,
foreign countries (e.g. United States and United Kingdom), and
international agencies such as the OECD.
