Overdue resources

Students with overdue items a) will not be allowed to borrow any more LRC resources, and b) risk being blocked from using LRC computers.
The above sanctions are lifted when the student either returns all overdue items, or pays for them if they have been lost.


The LRC provides wifi access so that you can use you handhelds to support your research.  The network key will be available via an emai sent out at the start of each term to your WMSF email account.  Please be aware that keyboard equipped deviced cannot be used in the silent study area – the sound of tapping keys can be infuriating!


The LRC has three printers including a color photocopier enabled as a printer and a scanner

Zoning  The LRC operates a zoning policy to help students get the best out of their study.  The silent study area Blue stripe on the wall is reserved for those who want to work in total silence

The Green Zone is for quiet working with a partner

The Red Zon is reserved for group study

Behaviour in the LRC
The main aim of the LRC is to support students in their studies by providing a good study environment. For this reason, we enforce the following rules:

No talking at all in the silent room.
In the rest of the LRC, quiet, work-related talking is allowed.
Food and drink must not be brought into the LRC.
Mobile phones must be switched off at all times.
