All Post 16 Students attending courses at Redland Green Post 16 Centre are welcome to come and use The Hub for study, research, borrowing and returning items. The Post 16 Library Team is always available to help you with resource selection, computer support and textbook issues.
The Hub is a quiet study space, where students can expect to be able to work without being disturbed. Likewise we expect students to be considerate of others while using the Hub by keeping noise to a minimum, being respectful to library staff, and leaving the space clean and tidy.
There are 28 laptops available to use in the Hub to support your learning, as well as a printer/photocopier.
We subscribe to numerous periodicals to provide up-to-date wider reading for each subject taught at RGS.
Students have free access to subscription-only online resources, such as digital editions of the Philip Allan ‘Review’ magazines, which contain articles written specifically for A-level students. There is further information about our online resources here.
Our Careers section has information on most of the main universities across the UK, books on everything from becoming a TV presenter to travelling the world, and posters/leaflets on the latest careers events and courses.
We have a growing collection of DVDs available to borrow, including films on art and design, foreign language films, and general interest films.
When you’re not busy studying, why not pick up a book from our fiction and graphic novels section. We are always looking to expand our collections, so please feel free to make suggestions.
We have audio books of many classic and popular titles.
Our online catalogue (Oliver) allows you to search for specific books or browse by subject to see if we have something you’d like to borrow:
