Learning Resources

Learning Resources is more than just a Library!

The Learning Resources team offer a wide range of facilities and services to support your learning. This includes three well stocked libraries, two Learning Centres in Montrose and Forfar and four Learning Hubs.

To accommodate all learning styles, within each of the main campus buildings we offer a range of learning environments including: bookable IT group study rooms, individual study booths, group work areas and laptop workspaces. Like the rest of the College all our study areas have access to Wi-Fi.

At Dundee and Angus College, we believe that your learning does not end when you leave the classroom, we therefore offer a wide range of services and facilities to help you to develop the essential skills required for learning, life and work. These include Study Skills workshops and Career Management Skills classes, online interactive tutorials and one to one support with referencing, research techniques and presentation skills.

In addition we offer a wide range of volunteering opportunities to further enhance your skill set and support your progression to further education and employment.

Learning Resources staff across all campuses are here to support and help you during your time at College. Therefore, if you need help or assistance with anything as wide ranging as how to add pages numbers to your essay to where can I book a PC, then please just come and ask. We are here to help!
