Learning Resource Centres

West Durrington, Shoreham and Broadwater LRCs

Our Learning Resource Centres (LRCs) are at the centre of College life and provide access to a range of computers, flexible study areas and course-related resources, including online and a large library collection. Students can drop in as required for independent study, book out spaces to work as an individual or in groups, use the resources and explore new media. Additionally, students can book workshops and 1:1 sessions to develop their information literacy, research and software skills.


The library service has an extensive collection of publications including books, periodicals, DVDs, music and access to various online resources. Relevant items can be borrowed from any of our campus LRCs by presenting a current College ID card and we have a skilled, enthusiastic and friendly team available to support you and your studies.



Each centre is equipped with computers providing access to the internet, MS Office, course-focused specialised software, and the college’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) to support learning and skills development. Additionally, you can use our multi-functional devices for printing, photocopying and scanning. Staff are on hand to support you with using the resources, software, equipment, WiFi and troubleshooting any problems with your logins.

We use Google Workspace for Education, an online learning environment where students can access their course materials and college support information. Google Workspace enables learners to store and share their work and collaborate easily. Turnitin is also used for assignment submissions and originality checking. Additionally, students have access to Planet eStream, our video streaming platform and a range of online academic journals, articles and specialist subject digital resources, such as Digital Theatre+.


West Durrington Campus

At West Durrington the LRC collection and services are centrally located in our purpose-built, split-level centre (LRC 1 and 2). The Centre houses an extensive library collection, and you can access guidance and support on the use of a wide range of software packages, textual and visual materials and online digital resources.
