Library Resource Centre   - LRC

The LRC is a thriving area of The Wavell School and is used by students throughout the day. For details on how to use the LRC please read our 'User Guide'.



Our web-based database called Eclipse, is accessible from any computer enabling you to search the Centre's resources as well as listing websites suitable for cross-curricular use.

You are also given a unique pin-code which then enables you to reserve books, write/read reviews and personalise your own accounts. However you do not need your username of password just to search the database.

Question Can't remember your user name or password?!...come and see one of the librarians to reset it.
