The Michael Devine Discovery Centre provides information, resources and services to the Lumen Christi College community, including a library, collaborative learning group spaces and the ICT office. The resources are designed to meet the needs of our students and the requirements of the curriculum.
The Discovery Centre has a wonderful range of books in various formats, with a particularly good selection in the Fiction section, and with new publications arriving regularly. The library subscribes to an ever growing number of magazines and journals, and these, along with other resources, are available to be borrowed by students or used in the Discovery Centre.
The Discovery Centre is open Monday 8.00am - 3.30pm, Tuesday - Thursday 8.00am - 4.25pm, and Friday 8.00am - 4.00pm, including breaks. The normal borrowing period is two weeks for both fiction and non-fiction items. A few high demand items are available on overnight loan only. High demand items may also be placed on closed reserve for a set period of time, during which these resources may only be used in the Discovery Centre.
Students may borrow up to four items at any one time, and are encouraged to ensure that they always have something to read.
Printing, Photocopying and Scanning
The Discovery Centre has two multi function devices (MFDs) which combine photocopying, printing and scanning facilities. The MFDs are available for student use and are accessed using a PIN (Personal Identification Number). The PIN is issued to all students in an email at the beginning of the school year and students are advised to save this email for future reference.
The Library MFDs are available to students before school, during Break 2 and after school.
