THE LIBRARY INFORMATION CENTRE
Nowadays, there is more to being a student than reading, and at College students need to do a lot of individual study. Part of this involves reading material assigned by lecturers, but most of it requires students to find information related to their studies – choosing, reading, evaluating and bringing together information that they consider essential for their research. The library is a very important source for this work, and especially a library whose resources can be accessed on-line and from home.
One of the advantages of studying at Intercollege is that students have access to the University of Nicosia Library and the services it offers. The libraries of Intercollege are linked to the University of Nicosia Library and students may remotely access its catalogue and order books which are not available in their Campus Library.
The College Library Information Gateway on the World Wide Web www.library.unic.ac.cy is accessible from anywhere on campus and remotely. The Gateway gives access to local, national and international information sources including:
The on-line catalogue (InterCAT), which allows students to search the 90,000 books of the library collection by Author, Title or Subject. The system allows students to reserve material loaned out to other users, to view outstanding loans and to renew books from home.
Access is also given to a wide range of networked electronic sources relevant to the subject area of study, including on-line databases with thousands of journals, newspapers, subject gateways and helpful hints for faster and improved research.
In addition to the Main Collection, the library hosts the following Special Colllections:
• The Reserve Collection – a short loan collection which allows essential course materials to circulate quickly and
• The Reference Collection.
For material not found in the College library or any other libraries on the island, there is an Interlibrary Loan Service provided through collaboration with The British Library Document Supply Centre, and the University of Utah.
Photocopy facilities are available for materials not loaned out.
Finally, the library combines access of resources with a pleasant atmosphere for individual or group study. Both Internet and Wi-Fi access is available and the library staff are always on hand to assist students in their hunt for the relevant research material needed for their assignments. For more information visit the library website.
The College bookshop complements the library. Students are able to purchase their textbooks and other reading material through the bookshop which they may find suitable for their personal library.
The majority of computer programming and software development courses are taught in the three computer labs equipped with state-of-the art hardware and software. These labs are also made available for students throughout the day and during term time, on Saturdays.
