GTC's Advanced Studies Centre (ASC) provides enhanced study, learning and meeting spaces for College members at the Woodstock Road site.
College Library and information technology are integrated in the Library and Learning Resources Centre in the ground floor and lower ground floor of the Walton Building.
The library service supports College members across the full disciplinary range of programmes studied at GTC. A single catalogue of the medical and management collections - incorporating the collection at the Osler-McGovern Centre, curated by GTC at 13 Norham Gardens - has been created, in union with the University's cataloguing system.
The Library on the ground floor includes space for silent study and a room which may be used for small group teaching sessions to support library use (the room will not be generally bookable). It also houses the Dr Martin Lee Weil MD Equipment Library which loans (free of charge) ophthalmoscopes and other instruments for BM students for relevant placements, and has a full-size articulated skeleton for learning anatomy.
On the lower ground floor of the Walton Building, an IT/computer room has work spaces, desk-top computers, and printer and scanner facilities. Study areas and collections are available 24 hours a day.
The ASC also includes the newly-refurbished E P Abraham Lecture and its entry lobby in the Walton Building, the Rotunda, and the Hayloft above the Stables Bar.
Further facilities in Observer's House and the east wing of the Radcliffe Observatory include the Kawasaki Room, an elegant seminar room overlooking the garden, and the Judith Folk Templeton Room, a secure study for the use of Fellows working regularly on site, as well as the growing number of academic visitors and College-appointed Junior Research Fellows. The Per Saugman Room is an open access group and individual work room.
