The Hume Library is the College’s information and learning hub, and is the site of its Centre for Teaching and Learning, which seeks to foster best practice in the delivery of the CCT’s core educational principles. It is both a study area and home to a varied book and journal collection dedicated to CCT’s main disciplines: IT and Business.
Alongside the physical space of the Hume Library, and the circulation of book loans to students CCT’s Library maintains a significant online presence, with access to major IT and Business journal databases and ebooks. These allow students access to the latest peer-reviewed journals and academic papers on and off campus, as well as being able to browse the library’s catalogue. Library staff liaise closely with faculty and admin staff to guarantee students the highest possible standard of teaching and learning support.
Students are given an introduction to the Library Services in induction week, and the staff at CCT Hume Library work to nurture helpful relations with students throughout the whole course of their study. In addition to study and research provisions, the Library is also the place where students come to borrow laptops for lectures, print study materials, and seek advice from library staff about study skills, good academic writing and efficient research methods.
