The Library provides information services that support the teaching and learning of all members of the College community; it promotes the enjoyment of reading and it provides a physical environment for the achievement of these goals.


The Library  supports the Mission of the College as a caring community inspired by Catholic traditions and values.

The policy of the Library at Edmund Rice College is to:


  • Support the College curriculum through the selection, acquisition and organisation of materials
  • Co-operate with teachers in the planning, implementation and evaluation of teaching and learning programs
  • Provide opportunities for students to develop information skills and use them confidently and competently, without resorting to plagiarism
  • Extend and enliven students’ learning experiences and enrich their lives through the effective use of a wide range of print and digital resources
  • Provide experiences to stimulate reading and promote an enjoyment of reading and learning
  • Ensure that resources in the Library Resource Centre are consistent with issues relating to equality of opportunity, in the tradition of Blessed Edmund Rice
  • Extend the resources available to the College through co-operation with other schools, libraries and the community
  • Provide a variety of teaching and learning environments for classes, small groups and individuals (including staff)
  • Provide appropriate training so that students and staff use technology ethically, critically and creatively
  • Continually evaluate collections, programs and services
