The British Council library has evolved from its former cramped quarters on Hennessy Road to an Information Centre complete with the latest hi-tech equipment. Since moving last month to the council's new 6,477-square-metre premises on Supreme Court Road, Admiralty, the additional space has allowed the Information Centre to be transformed into a hi-tech learning centre. It has Internet access, CD-ROM, multi-media facilities, cable television as well as the latest British publications, videos and English-language course books. Elizabeth Townson, the council's assistant director of information, said the centre would have a booth at the British Education Exhibition '97 to publicise the centre, distribute literature on British education and sell the English-language course books. 'The English-language courses offered by the British Council have always been among our most popular programmes,' she said. 'We are selling the course text for students studying at the British Council and the primary objective is to inform people about the book centre and the titles we offer.' The centre offers books on English for beginners, business English, general English and the International English Language Testing System (IELST), which is a 'must' for all students studying English. It also has a book ordering service from London. Ms Townson said Dell Computers and Hongkong Telecom had donated four computers to the centre which would allow council members to explore the Internet. She said the Internet was a great tool for students to explore study opportunities.
