Learning Hub (Building L24)

A selection of resources from the Learning Hub

The Student Study and Resource Centre (Building L24) houses the Learning Hub, a technical support service, University Library book drop and a drop-in point for Education Liaison Librarians and Study Support Advisors.

The Learning Hub

The Learning Hub is a resource base that primarily supports the work and study of staff and student teachers at the Institute of Education. It is home to a wide range of materials that aid teaching and lesson planning, including a substantial collection of children's literature, teaching schemes, reading schemes, big books, puppets and posters. Alongside the resource collection, the Learning Hub offers both quiet and group study spaces as well as access to computers, printing facilities and Wi-Fi.

Please see our Learning Hub guide for further information on resources and services.
