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. Additionally, students can book workshops and 1:1 sessions to develop their information literacy, research and software skills.


The library service has a collection of over 80,000 books, a large periodical collection, 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 G Suite for Education, an online learning environment where students can access their course materials and college support information. G Suite 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

In addition to the main LRC at West Durrington Campus, there are specialist Learning and Research Centres for different subject areas. These centres offer guidance and support on the use of software packages and access to a wide range of cuttings, slides, periodicals and other textual and visual materials, A2 scanner, large-format printer and online resources. Students are able to continue their learning and research in an independent manner, use specialised equipment, explore new media and access our Virtual Learning Environment with a friendly team on hand who are skilled in supporting creative arts.
