HE LRC Intro

Welcome to the home page of the HE Library website!  There is a direct link to here from MyDay or you can find us under the ‘HE’ tab above.  Take a moment to look around and then follow the rabbit down the hole to go on…

(please note some page links have been disabled for this induction)

The menu on the left is the easiest way to navigate around the HE Library Website.  The ‘+’ symbols will lead to even more pages.
You can find our contact details on the right.





Please note: The HE Library has now re-located to the Learning Curve, ground floor in the main Barnsley College building. The HE Library in the Church St campus is now closed to students. If you wish to return books and have a valid student card, you can return books to the Learning Curve desk or the book return box, which is in the Learning Curve. If you do not have a valid student card, please leave books you are returning with reception in the main college building. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing new and returning students in the Learning Curve from September.

You can now find us on our Barnsley College Libraries Facebook page and Twitter feed, please like and follow us for all of the up-to-date news from the library.

Here are two information leaflets to get you started with Discovery:  

OpenAthens is the gateway to all our online resources including journals, ebooks and much more! Most of these collections are included in Discovery (EBSCO) search. Watch out for a (D) after the database name on your MyAthens list to see exactly what is included. New to using Athens?  Find out how to log on on our ‘Library Basics’ page!

Heritage is our Library catalogue. Heritage is included in Discovery searches, but you can also use this to search just for books, make reservations and manage your library account.
