The Rosny College Library

Our goal is to support the Rosny College priorities of Quality Teaching and Learning and Wellbeing, by providing a supportive, welcoming, collaborative space for the college community where everyone can access curated, quality resources to enable learning and recreational activities which foster lifelong reading, literacy and learning.  Please visit us and let us know if we can help you.  



Rosny College Teacher-Librarians assist students to access, critically evaluate and use ideas and information.

They collaborate with subject teachers to develop students' skills and understanding in:

  • the importance of academic integrity
  • formal referencing using APA, Harvard, Chicago and MLA referencing styles
  • using Turnitin (the on-line plagiarism detection tool) with pre-tertiary classes
  • the effective use of the intranet and internet for research
  • using our on-line databases such as JSTOR and Echo and the Rosny College library catalogue and the state-wide Libraries Tasmania catalogue
  • accessing UTAS library resources through the Step Up Program (available to students and staff)
  • file management, email and using ClickView (our digital video streaming system)




The Rosny College library has:

  • An extensive print and non-print collection
  • The intranet provides 24/7 access to on-line resources
  • 116 study spaces
  • 26 networked computers and 46 wireless laptops for student use
  • 23 laptops and 23 internet hotspots available for 2 week student loan
  • Photocopier, phone charging stations (chargers provided) and power points for laptop charging
  • A catalogue which is part of the Tasmania-wide TALIS network and lists all Rosny College resources and those of other Tasmanian library collections.



The student ID card allows students to borrow up to fifteen items at a time. 

The loan period is three weeks for books with shorter loan times for high demand items, e.g. cameras
