Don't Forget to Return Your Books!!

A reminder to students that ALL books (including both LRC and departmental books) must be returned by no later than Friday 30th June.

However you don’t have to wait until then, once your exam is over, don’t carry them around for longer than you need too – return them straight away.

Can you please make sure that you return ALL books to the LRC and not to the department.  This enables us to effectively clear your account on our system and ensures you don’t get any unnecessary fines and chasing letters/e-mails.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Dementia Awareness Week

Dementia Awareness Week

14 to 20 May 2017


This year Dementia Awareness Week takes place from the 14 to 20 May 2017.  The Alzheimer's Society is asking everyone in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to unite against dementia.
Dementia is set to be the biggest 21st century killer.  However, awareness and understanding remains low and many families are facing it alone.

During the week, the Alzheimer's Society wants everyone to come together and take action.  By uniting everyone can raise awareness, offer help and understanding, improve care and urgently find a cure.

Come and take a look at the display in the LRC, as we raise awareness about dementia.  There are some free booklets and postcards available to take away published by the Alzheimer's Society, as well as some fiction and film tie-in books about people with dementia and books on dementia.  Further information and publications can be found on The Alzheimer's Society website.

LRC Survey

Each year we ask students to complete a survey about the Learning Resources Centre. 
Please spare a few minutes to complete this survey as your opinions and comments will help the LRC make improvements to its resources and services.
You can access the survey here (you will need to log into Moodle when prompted).
Many thanks in advance.

Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week

8 to 14 May 2017

Surviving or Thriving? 
Today is the start of Mental Health Awareness Week, which is organised by the Mental Health Foundation. The theme for the week is Surviving or Thriving? Good mental health is more than the absence of a mental health problem.  That's why during this week, mental health is being looked at from a new perspective.  Instead of asking why so many people live with mental health problems, the week will seek to uncover why too few people are thriving with good mental health.

Come and take a look at the display in the LRC depicting information from the Mental Health Foundation website, as well as some resources available in the LRC to borrow including some self help guides on dealing with anxiety, confidence and stress.  Further information, publications and resources can be found on the Mental Health Foundation website.

LRC Printer Out of Action

The LRC printer is currently out of action - we apologise for this.  However students can still print in College as follows:-

You can print in the LRC to the Toshiba queue.  This printing can then be released from either the Woodhurst printer (on the ground floor) or the Chancellors printer (located in C104).

Alternatively you can print to the Kyocera printers in either the Study Area or IT Suite - however you do need to be on the computers in one of these areas to send your printing.

The LRC printer should be back up and running later today or first thing tomorrow.

Final Term Stationery Sale

Welcome back to the final term of the academic year.  The LRC has been extremely busy today and it's been great to see so many of you busy working away.

Exam season is now fast approaching with only a few weeks to go until the first exam.  The LRC is the perfect place to study and revise and we are back to our normal opening hours of 8.15am every morning.

For the final term we have also introduced a small stationery sale with notepads, revisions cards and pens vastly reduced, so pop in and make sure you purchase some soon.
