Services and collections

Services and collectionsLibraries are forever inventing, innovating and growing. They hold collections on virtually every subject. Audiovisual material, language courses, local history books, primers for young readers, nautical charts – no subject is beyond the broad scope of these collections. The same is true for the services they offer, including a reference and research service, Internet stations, large-scale loans to institutions, a lending room and automated workstations.
