Library comments book:

  • "Amazing place, amazing people, amazing resources. Absolutely my favourite Library in London" IoN staff
  • "This Library is a rare gem. So lovely. So peaceful. A place where you can actually think and feel and be creative. The silence is rejuvenating. Please don’t ever take it away…"  NHNN staff
  • "This is one of the most organised, well set out Libraries I’ve been to. Thank you to the Librarian who showed me around and for the use of it made available to NHNN staff".
  • "This is the most calming, respectful, serene library I’ve been to. What’s more, the staff are the most welcoming and friendly. They always greet you, deal with your needs hastily and respectfully and meet any request thrown at them. Thank you for the effort to make this a beautiful place to learn". IoN student
  • Wonderful being shown around the Library and the facilities that you have here. Particularly impressed by the easy switch between the Queen Square Library and UCLH computers. Loved the water fountain too….Very well thought through”. Doctor
  • “Best study room UCL offers. Love the comfy chairs as well! Huge desk, internet connection, your own privacy and space. It’s perfect. And all the books you need nearby!”
  • “very helpful staff. Good selection of resources” – OT
  • “Thank you for a fantastic tour and introduction from a truly enthusiastic and valuable librarian” MRes student.
  • "I have been coming to this library for 4 years and have never encountered the level of support and service offered here elsewhere. Keep up the good work!" Research postgrad.

Your Questions

You Say We Say

1. Could we have 'Refresher' days where library staff run through services and lunchtime training sessions?

We have been piloting both of these since March 2014
2.Please improve access to Eduroam Eduroam is now available throughout the Library
3. I can’t find Explore on the Queen Square Library website Explore is now linked on the Queen Square Library home page
4.The range of electronic books seems limited We encourage all our users to let us know if there is a resource that the library does not currently offer, giving details of the specific title(s). It is not always possible for us to purchase access immediately, if the cost of the resource is high, but we maintain a 'wishlist' of all requests received

5. Extend your opening hours

Unfortunately, extending library opening hours is not currently feasible due to the absence of a security presence at 23 Queen Square and within current library staffing levels. We will continue to monitor and review the situation. Registered library users can also use all the UCL libraries, some of which have longer opening hours

6.I'd like more computers with MS Office software

Library computers are for access to library resources. They cannot be used for MS Office because UCL’s licence does not allow for access by non-UCL users
