HSC Resources

The Blue Mountains City Library staff are available to provide research and study assistance to HSC students. Do not hesitate to come and talk to us.

To support your studies, we offer a special HSC collection. It includes study guides for subject such as English, Maths, Chemistry, History, Religion, Computer Studies, Legal Studies and more. The HSC collection can be used within the library or can be borrowed overnight (up to two per card). You will find the HSC guides at Springwood, Katoomba and Blaxland libraries. Students at the other branches can get access to the collection, just ask the library staff. Some of the titles in the HSC collection are also available as a regular 3 week loan, so check the catalogue. Students and teachers are encouraged to suggest additions to the collection.
