Learning Resource Centres

Our Learning Resource Centres will provide you with access to modern, well-resourced facilities at our three main campuses in Alloa, Falkirk and Stirling.

Although our campuses are currently closed, we have a dedicated team planning how we can open our Learning Resource Centres safely, whilst complying with physical distancing guidelines. 

Keep checking this page for updates. 

Ask the LRC Team

Due to social distancing measures currently in place across all our campuses, the Learning Resource Centre Team have created a channel on Microsoft Teams to provide staff and students with quick and easy access to advice and support such as:

• Booking a PC
• Requesting books and e-books
• Flexible learning queries
• General advice, such as resetting your password, etc.

Students and staff can access this area by clicking ‘Join a team’ in Microsoft Teams and adding the following code -blae5o6.

.

They will then be able to contact the team directly using the chat facility on Teams (available between 8.45am-4.45pm, Monday to Friday)
