This blog post highlights a few new additions to our collection, a new library guide for the RDC School of Trades & Technologies, and information about RDC Library.
At RDC Library, we encourage all students to use our quiet study space, group study rooms, computers, and comfortable seating. Our Winter Term Hours allow you to study until 9 PM Monday to Thursday, and 5 PM on Friday, as well as weekends.
We also house Academic Support, which includes the Math Learning Centre, peer tutoring, the Writing Skills Centre, and Learning Skills and Strategies, and Disability Resources, which provides specialized support for students.
Ask our friendly Library Desk staff how to access our online and print information. We have added a number of new books in Trades & Technologies to our collection: in this past year, titles included Safety In Welding, Cutting, And Allied Processes; Engineering Mechanics, Dynamics; Statics; The How Can It Be Gluten Free Cookbook:, Groundbreaking Recipes; and Calibration: A Technician’s Guide. Your iCard is also your library card, so have a look at our collection!
In addition, to better serve our learners, we have created a new Trades & Technologies library guide for Winter 2015. This guide includes sections on finding books and articles, codes and safety information, websites and streaming videos, and apprenticeship information, as well as how to Ask Us! via chat, text, phone, and email.
RDC Library provides learner-centred resources and services to all students, staff, and faculty, as well as our community. For more information, please contact Jillian Sinotte, Librarian for the School of Trades and Technologies.
