Grafton library's virtual study rooms go online next month
ONE of the two virtual study rooms at Grafton's Sir Earle Page Regional Library should come online for university students next month.
Southern Cross University signed a lease with Clarence Valley Council earlier this month to make the room available to local students studying remotely from the university.
A similar arrangement was to have been put in place for students studying at the University of New England, but here have been unforseen complications.
A spokeswoman for SCU said the facilities would be available for all uni students.
"We won't be turning any students away," she said.
"The facilities are not dedicated to a particular university.
"Students should be able to come in and log into their university courses from the computers we have here."
Clarence Valley Council set up two rooms to be virtual classrooms for university students.
It signed a lease for the use of one of them with SCU 10 days ago, but has not reached an agreement with UNE.
