图书馆的历史

这座图书馆建于1936年,是为了纪念F.S. 杨,1900年至1931年任学院校长. 它的设计者是R.C. 福斯特. It was administered by a succession of masters until 1991 when the Governors made the decision to modernise it and employ a full-time librarian who took up the appointment in September 1992.

This was the beginning of a policy designed to provide the whole College with an 信息 Resources Centre second to none in the area.

Traditionally the library has been the central resource to access information largely through paper, i.e. 书籍、期刊和报纸. 自1992年以来,它一直被翻新, the impressive high-ceilinged room was completely renovated with carpeting and low chairs enhancing the panelled walls and oak shelving to provide a welcoming and pleasing environment in which students are encouraged to study or read. A fully computerised catalogue and barcode 系统问题 was installed and major expansion took place in the Reference and 小说 

部分. ICT workstations were also installed to supplement the extended range of paper-based information. 各种各样的报纸, journals and 杂志 covering both leisure and academic interests were made available.

With the unveiling of the 1995/96 Development Appeal the Governors decided that Phase 2, 图书馆扩建应该继续进行. This involved the expansion and updating of the library's current computer provision, 它的书籍和视听资源. Linked galleries and a walkway on both wings of the library at first-floor level provided additional space for mobile and fixed bookshelves and also for display cases containing the College's extensive and unique Archive collection. The 'new look' 图书馆资源中心 now has additional study facilities, 电脑, 互联网和电子邮件设施, 以及DVD和CD库.

Since April 1997 there have been two qualified librarians assisted by evening/weekend supervisors, and between them they ensure that the library is fully supervised for 70 hours a week to provide research facilities and assistance for students and staff.
