Each Learning Resources Centre (LRC) is a multi-media centre that provides an environment conducive to study, research and leisure reading.  The library services include circulation, reference service, photocopying, inter-library loans, library user education, etc.  LRC facilities and equipment vary from campus to campus.  In total, the library collection in the VTC LRCs contains over 603,000 volumes to meet the needs of the users.  Apart from books, journals and audio-visual materials, the VTC Library also subscribes to electronic databases to enable students and staff to have access to the latest information worldwide.

Current information on library resources and services including electronic resources and online databases is available on the VTC Library Homepage at:

The LRC opening hours of each campus may be changed subject to the demand for use and staff availability.  Details of opening hours are posted at the entrances of the LRCs.

The VTC Library has launched its projects in setting up Learning Resources Centre (LRC).  The aim is to develop the VTC Library into a one-stop resources centre to provide printed, multi-media and electronic resources.  The centre includes the Campus Library, Computing and Multi-media services so as to provide an integrated learning environment for students and staff.  Both the buildings and services are specifically designed to meet learning and teaching needs.
