Library services at the Scottish Borders Campus and at our Newtown Campus are being provided to Borders College by Heriot-Watt University Library Service.
Both Libraries are fully accessible to students with disabilities. If you need assistance in getting to the Libraries, please contact staff at reception.
The Heriot-Watt Library Service will provide Borders College students and staff with
- Quality learning resources
- Help to find information essential to teaching and learning
- Environments conducive to effective learning and study
We offer a wide range of resources to students and staff covering all college subjects, and general subjects such as careers, citizenship, study skills, core skills and much more.
We have printed resources (course textbooks, reference books and magazines). Most stock can be borrowed with generous lending limits. A 'Standard Loan' is for up to 3 weeks, and staff and students can use the online Library Catalogue to:
- search for Library stock and reserve it using the 'Request' function
- check to see their loans
- renewloans (before they become overdue).
Loan renewals can also be done by visiting the Library, by telephoning 01896 89 2185, or by sending an email to SBCServiceDesk@hw.ac.uk.
Library staff will be happy to show you how to use the Catalogue, or do a search for you.
The Library also subscribes to a number of online resources.
There are also facilities for scanning, printing and photocopying and our staff will assist you in using our project binding equipment. Staff and students with wireless enabled laptops will also be able to access the Internet and the Borders College network via our wireless Internet connection.
Our friendly staff are always happy to help you find the information you require for your college work. Please just ask!
