LRC Display

The Learning Resource Centre presents a display for Freshers Week and Stay Safe Week.  This is the first of many themed events that will take place in and around college and the LRC always delivers a display to correspond with such events.  Please take the time to look at the display which gives detailed information of times and venues for the events taking place along with highlighting a number of relevant resources.

And a huge welcome to all the new and returning students as we start a new academic year.

To get you back into your studies we have purchased loads of new books over the summer (many of which are featured on our blog) so make sure to check them out.

We have also made some exciting improvements to the Learning Resource Centre......

- We have bought some shiny new laptops that students can borrow to use within the LRC.  So, if you can't find a computer in the LRC, please ask to borrow a laptop.

- We have purchased some new digital cameras that can be loaned for a two day period.

- We have created another fiction corner with some comfy seating and split the collection over the two areas.

- We have a new DVD section which includes many modern languages DVDs.

- We have moved the Career's library to the other side of the LRC.  We have a dedicated career's librarian who can help students use these resources.

- We have created a private group study area on the upper level of the LRC.

And this is just a brief overview of some of the improvements made.  For further information please speak to a member of the LRC team.
