Description

The Rudranath Capildeo Learning Resource Centre (RCLRC) is a training hub for professionals of the education sector. It houses a library and auditorium which has been previously rented for seminars, workshops and even ballroom dancing events.

The Rudranath Capildeo Learning Resource Centre (RCLRC) Library is organised to meet the information needs of professionals in the education sector of Trinidad and Tobago. It is geared towards encouraging tertiary research in all aspects of education among the Ministry of Education's staff. However, its services extend further into the community, drawing users from the teacher training colleges, the University of the West Indies, other institutions and libraries, as well as members of the general public.

The RCLRC Library supports these objectives by providing services, information and data in the following areas:

Curriculum development and the promotion of innovations and strategies in the system.
The production of multi-media teaching guides and classroom learning and teaching aids.
Staff development courses.
The effective distribution and retrieval of information and materials.
Collaboration with other departments of the Ministry of Education, the Faculty of Education of the University of the West Indies, and similar institutions to share and disseminate materials and information relevant to the field of education.
