Heritage Library Catalogue

Our libraries might not be what you’re expecting… Our libraries are part of our learners’ wider experience at Leicester College. They are where friends study, where you will spend your spare time, where you can access a computer, or choose a film for the weekend.

Our libraries are where lessons can take place, or you can spread out to organise your portfolio or project. They are where you might book a laptop or tablet, where you will find gripping fiction and course journals.

All of our learners can borrow items from the libraries with their student cards.

Whilst at Leicester College you will get to know our librarians and the libraries team, they are part of the essential support network that will ensure you successfully complete your studies.

Here are just some of the resources our libraries offer:

  • 68,000 items and 220 magazines and journals that cover all areas available to study
  • Fiction, coursebooks and audiobooks
  • Computers
  • A large number of DVDs and CDs
  • 24/7 access to resources through the College’s Virtual Learning Environment
  • Areas for individual and group study
