Library

The Library is at the heart of the college campus, providing a vibrant and positive learning environment for all our students.

Virtual Learning

The College appreciates that this is a difficult and confusing time, but its priority remains the health, safety and wellbeing of its students and staff. To support the ongoing education of our students we have produced a number of frequently asked questions in relation to library services available during this period of virtual learning.

  • Access to electronic books, journals and databases through our eLibrary, so you can study in college or in the comfort of your own home
  • A range of study spaces to suit everyone – so if you need to work in a group, use a laptop on a sofa or work quietly on your own, the Library has somewhere for you
  • Extensive IT facilities including PCs, laptops and tablets. Feel free to bring in your own laptop, tablet or smart phone and enjoy access to our free Wi-Fi
  • Early morning, daytime and evening opening times – we are open when you need us most
