ABOUT THE RESOURCE CENTRE

Staff of the St Ursula’s College Resource Centre administer the College Library collection as well as Bookhire resources and Archive materials.

PHYSICAL FACILITIES

St Ursula’s College Resource Centre was opened on the 13 October 1973. It has a central standing within our College community.

The Library houses a large collection of curriculum based resources as well as an extensive fiction collection. Resources come in both print and electronic formats. At present there are more than 25,000 resources in the Library collection and 17,000 in Bookhire. Cataloguing and digitisation of the Archive collection began in 2013 and at present more than 8,300 items have been recorded.

 The Resource Centre is on two levels. It overlooks a central piazza that was officially opened in March 2008. The downstairs Resource Centre houses the non-fiction collection and audio-visual materials. This area is the hub of the Library and consists of two separate areas for class groups. The circulation desk and Resource Centre administration are also located on the ground floor.

The top floor houses a large open area which is often used for meetings. It contains fiction, teacher reference, Bookhire and media studio.

The Archive collection is housed on the mezzanine floor of our College Chapel and internet access to the collection is available by clicking the link below:
