Memorial University Libraries is one of Atlantic Canada’s largest university libraries. In addition to the millions of book and periodicals, it houses several specialized archives and collections, including the largest collection of published materials about Newfoundland and Labrador in the world.
The Queen Elizabeth II Library (QEII) is the main branch on the St. John's campus. It has five floors of comfy places to quietly study, but also spaces designed for group work and collaboration. Expert librarians and library staff can help navigate the vast world of information to help students on their journey towards academic success.
The QEII Library has an ever-expanding collection of online-based tools and resources that students can access from on-campus, home, or anywhere in the world.
The QEII Library is also home to The Commons – a collaborative study space with access to the Internet, research resources, and a Digital Media Centre that provides students with free access to graphic and digital design programs. The Commons also offers one-on-one software tutorials in MS Office and the Adobe Suite; assistive technology software, hardware, and support services; and provides academic tutoring in The Tutorium. The Commons has recently introduced a mobile MakerSpace and 3D printer, which will give students the opportunity to gather, tinker, and create using a variety of tools and materials.
The Commons has two additional locations on campus, The Rotunda, located under the clock tower in the Munnels, and the Hatcher Commons.
