Resources

Delta operates a dynamic and well-equipped reference resource centre. It caters for members of the public, students, teachers and our education staff requiring information for projects on environmental and ecological matters. A unique collection of books, magazines, pamphlets, videos, slides and posters can be used as references to assist research or project work.

Thanks to the generosity of one of Delta’s sponsors, the resource centre has a computer which is used for cataloging and indexing books and periodicals, making information more easily available. A photocopying service is also available.
