Learning Resource Centre (LRC)

Situated in Holworth building, this centre consists of the Learning Gateway on the ground floor and the Library on the first floor. Printing and photocopying facilities are available on both floors as well as a range of stationery for sale. All areas of the Learning Gateway and Library are accessible to wheelchair users.

Learning Gateway

The Learning Gateway has open access computers for student use. Like the rest of the campus, it is WiFi enabled for mobile appliances. Within the Learning Gateway are two teaching rooms and a general study area for individual or group work.

Learning Gateway staff are on hand to offer IT support and help you make full use of all learning resources, including Moodle, Weymouth College’s own VLE (virtual learning environment). Moodle holds numerous resource materials, including links to e-books and e-journals, that support your lectures and practical work. You can access Moodle off campus so you can study or research at times to suit you.

As a student you can borrow up to twelve books, DVDs, CDs or magazines at a time. You can also borrow a laptop for use in the Library or a netbook for use elsewhere on campus. With your tutor’s written permission, you may also borrow camcorders, digital voice recorders and cameras.

Other services provided by the Library include free inter-library loans, an online catalogue which you can use to reserve books or access e-books and e-journals away from campus, and you can renew books by email or phone, especially useful during the holidays.

The Library has a dedicated silent study area as well as tables for quiet group work and an area housing a selection of journals. Members of the public are welcome to join the Library and can borrow up to two items at a time.
