  • Laptops available for student loan from the LRC

The LRC has seven laptops, equipped with audio/visual capability, available for students to borrow for the day on campus ONLY.
Laptops cannot be booked. They come with a charger and cables and must be returned by the student on the same day they are borrowed.

In addition, a webcam is available for student use in the LRC, as well as single person use of the media pod and its high-end A/V enabled PC.

Access is provided both on and off campus.

 

 For the start of Semester 1, there are a few changes in the LRC about our facilities and services such as:

  • LRC After-hours access - Students asked, we listened ... and it's happening ...

The Quiet Zone section within the LRC (Library) will be the dedicated space for our users to access computers, printing and photocopying services only, outside of the normal opening hours. This area will be un-staffed outside of the normal opening hours. Currently, there are some delays in opening the space for access.

  • NO MORE FINES... what does it mean -
    •  No fines for overdue material. Instead, overdue items will attract demerit points for being late up to a threshold of 1000 points.

    • Any long-term overdue items and/or accrued demerit points over 1000 points will result in computer and network privileges being disabled (e.g. myWAI, Moodle, e-resource access on and off campus) and a SMS sanction being applied.

    • Items which are never returned or are reported as lost will still attract fines i.e. the replacement cost of the item(s) plus an administrative fee.


  • FICTION Collection - is now located in the Quiet Zone section. Any fiction suggestion is welcome and will be considered. Have a browse and you might find a gem ...


  • The JOUNAL and MAGAZINE Collection - Most of the journals and magazines are now located in one spot in the middle of the LRC, so the WAI users can browse to their hearts' content.

       
  • Writing Style Guide: A  to help you with writing your assignments, for example, correct grammar, is in preparation.
