Can I borrow materials?

Yes - from all the LRCs. All students are entitled to borrow up to 8 items - this includes books, journals (back issues), DVDs, videos and classical music CDs. Some items are marked as reference only.

How long can I borrow for?

Items can normally be renewed. If books have been requested by other users, or are very overdue, you will not be able to renew them. You can renew items yourself using the Autolib system - LRC staff will show you how to do this. You can also renew by telephone: 01233 743 100.

Other services Ashford College LRC offers?

All the centres have a black and white photocopier and additional colour copying facilities are available.

Documents can be scanned in a variety of formats, both colour and greyscale available.
