At our North Devon and Tiverton campuses, we offer quiet and comfortable places to study as well as support with technology.

Our LTLS team can provide a choice of PC or Chromebooks for independent study or for completing timetabled digital lessons (between 'InPerson' classes), and are on hand to help you access Google Classrooms, change passwords and access Eduroam - plus much more.

What can the team help you with?

  • Finding relevant and reliable information to support your study
  • Using Google Classroom, Moodle and the myPetroc dashboard
  • Accessing e-resources and e-books
  • Using the computers and Chromebooks

For extra online support, please visit the LTLS website.

For opening times and holiday opening times, please refer to the Library+ Site.

From the Tech Hub you can also hire out media equipment such as cameras and tripods.

If you need any help with booking equipment, a friendly member of staff will always be on hand.

At the library, you can borrow a range of items including books, headphones and Chromebooks. 

With your Petroc student card, you can borrow up to eight items at a time. You must return your items on time -  you'll be emailed with reminders!
