Learning Resource Centres


The Learning Resource Centres (LRCs) are professional and friendly information centres which provide access to a wide range of services and facilities for both students and staff.

We have two Learning Resource Centres located at the Woodbury Centre and the Millennium Centre. The LRCs hold the resources for subject areas taught on their respective sites. Millennium also holds resources for Beacon and Prospects centres. Both LRCs are open five days a week and as a student at Bury College you are welcome to use both centres.

We also have an IT Open Access area at Prospects Centre with access to 76 drop-in PCs, plus 23 in N212.

We are here to help

The LRCs are here to support you to complete your course of study successfully. LRC staff are experienced in dealing with enquiries and helping you find the resources you need. IT facilitators are on hand to offer IT support and guidance.

Each centre offers a spectrum of services and resources, including online databases, subject guides, daily newspapers, careers library, photocopying, scanning and printing facilities, bookable study zones and audio-visual zones. The Internet, MyVLE (the College's virtual learning environment), Microsoft Office and other computer applications are also accessed here. Resources available to borrow include books, magazines, DVDs, video and audio materials. You can
use the online catalogue (WebOPAC) to help you find what you need.

Using your student ID card, you can borrow ten items for up to four weeks and have access to computer facilities. Standard loan items may be renewed online once only. It is also possible to reserve items online: just ask a member of the LRC staff how to use this service.
