Led by the University of Southampton, the Subject Centre for
Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies has been set up to
promote high quality teaching and learning across UK higher
education institutions. The C&IT Centre for the Subject Centre is
based at the University of Hull; the HE Resources Collection is
housed in a dedicated Higher Education area within the library of the
Centre for Information on Language Teaching and Research (CILT) in
Covent Garden. The collection includes material related to language
teaching and methodology, and a range of relevant teaching
materials such as software, audio and video materials, course-
books developed specifically for use in the HE context, teaching
materials for languages for specific purposes and FDTL project
outputs. The library also holds a collection of over 400 journal titles.

In additional to audio-visual and study facilities in other parts of the
library, the HE area has a dedicated open study facility with room
for 8 people and a multimedia area which currently has:

* 2 high specification PCs equipped with full multimedia including DVD
and CD-ROM players.
* Facilities for playing analogue audio and videocassettes.
* A work area that can comfortably accommodate 4-5 people
