Library

The Rosny College library is managed by a friendly, helpful and professional team. The library team takes pride in assisting all students and staff with their varied information and literacy needs. They provide access to relevant up-to-date print and online resources and foster a positive attitude to learning and libraries.

The library provides a welcoming study environment with over 100 study spaces. The teacher-librarians take research classes and offer one-on-one assistance to students during their study lines. A love of reading for pleasure is fostered, along with the essential skills for information literacy.

Teaching

Rosny College teacher-librarians teach students to access, critically evaluate and use ideas and information. They work closely with subject teachers to develop students' skills and understanding in:

  • formal referencing using APA, Harvard or Chicago referencing styles
  • the importance of academic integrity
  • using Turnitin (the on-line plagiarism detection tool) with the pre-tertiary classes
  • the effective use of the intranet and internet for research
  • using our on-line databases and state-wide catalogue
  • accessing UTAS library resources through the Step Up Program (available to students and staff)
  • file management, email and using ClickView (our digital video streaming system)

Resources

The Rosny College library has an extensive print and non-print collection of over 32,000 items. The library intranet provides 24/7 access to on-line resources, including subscription databases and ClickView (our digital video streaming system). The library has 68 networked computers and 24 wireless laptops for student use. The catalogue is part of the Tasmania-wide TALIS network and lists all Rosny College resources and those of other Tasmanian library collections.
