Information & Reference Service
If you are looking for a quick guide to some of the more useful Internet sites in various topical areas why not visit our page at Reference Central?
We also operate a traditional Information and Reference Service which is concentrated in Alloa Library. From the resources held there we are able to answer a wide range of enquiries ranging from questions about statutory and voluntary organisations and particulars of businesses through to topics relating to science, sport, arts and cultural affairs.
The library holds a range of statistical information as well as material relating to careers, current affairs and social welfare. Coverage also includes laws and guides to law, foreign language dictionaries, biographical information and general encyclopaedias.
In addition to its other activities the service is responsible for the Web4U suites of computers at Alloa and other branches. Use of these is free, although users must sign up using their library card.
The Open Learning Service, which allows readers to borrow training packs for eight weeks at a time, is also attached to the library.
