We’ve been hard at work expanding our Subject Guides section on our website to now include over 40+ tailor-made pages that cover everything from Animation to Child Care, Drama to Mathematics, Media Studies to Public Services and much more!

On each page you’ll find lists of subject-relevant books, e-books, magazines, DVDs, streamed video (on our media player, ClickView), external websites and links to extremely useful study help sites.


Hopefully you’ll find everything you need, however if we have missed out a subject or a particular excellent website, please feel free to contact us and we’ll include it in our ever-expanding list, it’s an organic thing!

Why not take a look for yourself and discover something new?


Much Ado About Something! – Digital Theatre Plus

MuchAdoPicDigital Theatre Plus is a new e-resource the college library has recently subscribed to. It is a collection of streamed videos of theatre productions from the West End and Broadway, free to watch for all NWHC staff and learners!

I have just enjoyed watching a trailer from Much Ado About Nothing staring Catherine Tate and David Tennant. So funny!!

Although I haven’t time to watch the full production here at college  – the good news is… I can watch it on my iPad or laptop at home on the Digital Theatre Plus website.

This is an amazing resource for students and tutors. There are a variety of curriculum based theatre productions which are supported by study guides, teaching resources and interviews with cast and production teams.

The productions include several Shakespeare plays (e.g. Macbeth), From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy, Private Lives by Noel Coward and many more.

Simply go to Digital Theatre Plus, no password needed on campus. To use it off campus ask the library for a username and password.

More information on this resource can be found at here. Follow the links to take a look yourself – I hope you’ll be as impressed as I am!
