IT Facilities

Each campus Library boasts a suite of PCs, all with internet access and Microsoft Office, including Word, Excel, Access, Powerpoint and Publisher.

Additional Support

West College Scotland has a range of specialist resources and equipment for use by students who have additional support needs.


We subscribe to a growing number of electronic resources, including online reference works, journals, newspapers and ebooks. These can be accessed both directly in college and at home with your OpenAthens account.  For more information, see the library website.

Books and Journals

The Library has an extensive collection of print materials, including course textbooks, revision guides, past papers, quick reads, fiction, graphic novels, local history, newspapers and journals. Most items are available to borrow, although some items are for reference only. Each month, the Library has a display that focuses on specific subject areas or highlights relevant topics.

Accessing information and Referencing

Library staff will help you use the PCs, access resources and explain how to incorporate your research into your assignments.


There is access to combined printer / photocopiers on all campuses. At present, this is free of charge but is under review.


The Clydebank campus Library bookshop sells textbooks, calculators and stationery. The bookshop also offers a laminating and binding service.
