Northern College Library and Learning Support Centre reading roomOn 19 May 2014 our Learning Resources Centre (LRC) Manager visited the LRC team at Northern College for Residential and Community Adult Education at Stainborough, Barnsley.

The Northern Residential team is a double Council for Learning Resources in Colleges (CoLRiC) Beacon award winner for curriculum integration through their work with students as personal tutors and for integrating the use of tablets into the curriculum for  in the classroom from 2007 and 2013.

The visit was useful for gaining insight and comparing LRC services to learners; induction, support, eresources and stock. As well as the history of the Northern and Hillcroft.

Part of Northern’s Wentworth Castle grounds have been recently restored and are managed by their Wentworth Castle Heritage Trust.

This summer we have been creating a set of videos to help our students find their way around our Learning Resources Centre (LRC).

If you’re already a student or are thinking about joining a course find out about our services on the LRC Basics video.

Once you’re at Hillcroft College you’ll be able to access our handy LRC FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page to remind you about our services on the VLE.

We’ve also created an Ebooks video with one of ex-students highlighting why ebooks are important and how to use them.
