Welcome to your College Library Services. For all our news, resources and training videos, students should check out the Library Services tab on Moodle. Here's a few bits of quick info to get you started.

Access to the library is controlled according to physical distancing guidelines.  Occupancy is limited as we are only able to offer 25 individual study spaces.  Scan the QR code as you enter the library for track and trace purposes and please keep to the one way system.   Sanitising stations and cleaning stations are available.  Please clean your desk before and after use.

Face coverings

Face coverings are required when accessing and moving about the building at all times.  Once you are sat at your study space, then it is optional to wear a face covering.
