Afternoon Academic and Mentoring – Mount Alvernia College
This service is a wonderful opportunity for students to work on their homework or assessment tasks in a supervised and collaborative environment. Students are required to sign an online attendance record when they commence their study and on completion. They are encouraged to use their time effectively and access available staff to assist them with time management skills and developing successful study habits.
The Study Skills Handbook is a useful resource for students wishing to get the most from their time in study groups.

Who can borrow and what am I allowed to borrow?
Who can borrow? Borrowing of resources is available to all members of the Mount Alvernia community to support their teaching, learning and recreational needs. Available resources the iCentre offers a variety of resources and formats, including books, laptop chargers and magazines. Students also have the opportunity to borrow eBooks and audiobooks should they so wish. We also have a number of non-fiction eBooks in our collection to assist student research which can be accessed via the OPAC. Loan periods generally, items are available on a fourteen day cycle, except for equipment where the loan period may vary. Returns Borrowers are asked to consider others when borrowing and using resources and take responsibility for returning them at the appropriate time so they are readily available for other members of our community. Failure to do so causes great inconvenience.
