Library Catalogue

The library catalogue can be accessed by clicking here and there is no need to login.

Even though we are learning remotely, it is still helpful to be able to access the library catalogue to identify resources (books and websites) or search for a specific item. Each of the catalogue entries for books held in the school LRC include a brief summary of the plot if it is a fiction book, or subject details if it is a non-fiction or information book. The catalogue entry also details of the author, ISBN and AR quiz details and book level where appropriate.

For example, a search on the word RUGBY comes back with 17 results; a combination of books and websites.

1. If the item has a small book icon at the bottom of the matched results, the system has found you a physical book on Rugby.
