About

The Project Support Centre (PSC) was set up to support students by providing information to complement sources in the Marylebone Campus library (MCL). The MCL holds textbooks, journals and government publications, while the PSC concentrates on local authority publications, reports from pressure groups, professional bodies and other organisations. Basically, the PSC aims to provide a current awareness service – monitoring the latest developments in planning, housing, central and local government, construction, the environment, tourism, transport, the property market and regeneration. All material is for reference purposes only.

The Project Support Centre (PSC) website has been redesigned and is now available without requiring you to use your university log-in.  The individual pages can be viewed by using the headings at the top of the page, as follows:
