HOW CAN WE HELP?
Learning Hub Co-ordinator
Visit F107 to explore and borrow a range of fiction and non-fiction books
Visit our online book catalogue onsite or at home. You can search by Title, Author or Subject
Need a quiet space to work? We have three study pods available
Top up your printer credit at our online store. Remember, everyone gets £5 at the start of the year!
Check out our resources to help with your studies, such as researching, referencing etc.
We have a wide range of tech; laptops, cameras, ipads and more!
On your first visit to the Learning Hub you will need to get your badge activated at the desk. This allows you to borrow up to six items at a time, including books and tech.
Books are loaned out for a two or three week period, these can be renewed up to three times (if the book has not been reserved).
The self-service machine will only work after your badge has been activated.
If you are returning books outside of opening hours, please use the book returns box at the entrance of the Learning Hub.
Returning a book late will cause a fine of 5p per day. Late fees can be paid by card at the finance office or online at the BCoT store (for fines over 50p only), or in cash at the Learning Hub.
Please note that fines will continue to increase if the late book has not been returned or renewed.
FINDING YOUR BOOKS
We have divided our books into subject areas to make it easier for you to find the books relevant to your course. Each section is coloured to correlate to a broader topic. These sections are then divided into more specific subsections. If you are ever in doubt, please ask at the desk.
