The Library

The JCG library is situated at the heart of the College and is a bright and welcoming area for students and staff to visit

The library is well-equipped with both study and reading resources. It is a place that promotes a positive reading culture, stocking daily newspapers, magazines and an ever-growing range of fiction. It is also an information centre, which students can use to develop their subject knowledge and research skills, enabling them to access to a vast range of non-fiction and reference books. In addition to this, we house an Employability Library, where students can browse the most up to date careers information booklets and University Prospectuses.

The Library uses a computer programme called ‘Oliver’, which allows students to see if their chosen book is available, check on their loans and read the home page. This programme not only helps students learn how to manage their usage, but also prepares them for both university and public libraries.

With seating for up to sixty students, and an area with sofas and chairs, the JCG library offers students a comfortable and accessible area for all types of readers and learners.
