Learning Resource Centre (LRC)

The Learning Resource Centre (LRC) at the Mildura Campus incorporates the Gambetta Library, Bookshop, Printroom and the Mildura Videoconferencing Room.

The LRC is located on the 1st floor of the Mildura Campus. It is above the Hub, at the top of the stairs.

Many of its resources can be borrowed or purchased from other campuses via Student Administration at those campuses. A few of its books are located at the Swan Hill council library.


Gambetta Library

The Gambetta Library provides SuniTAFE and La Trobe University students with books, journals, magazines, DVDs, databases, audio visual equipment, computers, study rooms and related resources. Many of these are also available for use by the general public. It is north west Victoria's largest student library. Most of its items cannot be found in the council or secondary school libraries in the region.

Available resources include:

The library's catalogue can be viewed online.

The Library also has many computers and tables for students to use while studying, and study rooms available for group study.

The Library staff will also proofread student assignments on request, and offer study and internet skills sessions to class groups. If you are a student interested in such a session, please talk to your teacher.

Non-students can also borrow from the library, and use the computer room, if they purchase a Community Membership. This costs $55 ($33 concession) for 12 months, or $27.50 ($16.50) for 6 months (inc GST). Students from universities may join as community borrowers at concession rates with proof of current enrolment.

Year 11 and 12 teachers and students (and Year 10 students completing a Year 11 or 12 subject) can receive a free community membership if they complete an appropriate form.

Bookshop

The Bookshop sells SuniTAFE and La Trobe textbooks, software, memory sticks, phone credit, greeting cards, stationery and art supplies, plus hospitality clothing and equipment. Second-hand books are available for purchase, and are sold for students on commission. Booklists for all current SuniTAFE and La Trobe University (Mildura) courses are also available.

The shop additionally offers a book repair service, and can laminate books, posters, certificates and other items.

The shop has EFTPOS facilities, and maintains accounts for approved customers (such as businesses and government departments). It also takes orders and holds. It is recommended that textbooks be ordered before the start of semester.

Printroom

The Printroom offers full-colour public printing services, including stapling and booklet making. It can also produce large batches of CDs and DVDs, with printing on the top if desired.
