School of Mathematics and Physics


The University's collection of Mathematics and Physics text is housed in the McClay Library adjacent to the David Bates Building. Your lecturer will usually identify some textbooks as recommended or supplementary reading, with additional exercises, and students should take these opportunities of developing their research and scholarship skills. Check the Library webpage for access to the catalogue and various online resources.

The Library Catalogue 'QCat', can be also accessed from, where past exam papers for many individual modules can be found; Information on an individual module is usually provided by the lecturer through Queen's Online (QOL).

A useful entry point to the Library resources is the Mathematics & Physics LibGuide page. Our Subject Librarian is Carol Dunlop.
