The Library and Learning Centre

The Library & Learning Centre is the central resource provider for staff and students.

Students are encouraged to become regular users of the library for both study and relaxation purposes.

The Library houses a wide collection of print and non print resources. It is fully automated with local and international newspapers and Online Databases for student and staff reference. The Library catalogue, OLIVER (OPAC) and Online Databases can be accessed remotely (at home) from the Library Page on SMART or directly through “Handy Links” on SMART. Students should ensure they have a current user name and password to access SMART and OLIVER as the range of resources available on the Library site provide an invaluable aid to research both at home and at school.
