Our new library catalogue! 😺 📚

Our new library catalogue  powered by TinyCat 😺  displays most of the books in the school library. It’s constantly a work in progress with new books being added all of the time.  It has its very own tab just above here on the website so it’s very easily accessed.

I think you’ll agree that it’s a lovely clean and easy to use interface and I am delighted that we now have an online catalogue that students, parents and staff can access and browse anywhere.  You can enter any search term into the search box, such as an author’s name, a book title, or a genre such as fantasy to get recommendations.  You will be able to see if each book is available in the library or if it is currently checked out by someone else, and in that case, when it is due back. Each book entry also has much more information on what each book is about, and gives recommendations for similar books in the library.

In the advanced search area (the arrow button to the right of the search box) you can search by title, author, genre, tags (buzzwords like vampires, boys, friendship, mystery, historical fiction, feminism, comics, whatever you’re into) You can also search by ‘collection’ in the advanced search area which is great for Accelerated Reader students, as the Accelerated Reader books are all tagged as such, and can be searched by reading level as well.
It also allows students to have their own accounts set up where they can check what books they have out, renew their books, and request books. If you would like your student account set up just come to the library and ask for your library ID number.
In the meantime have a browse through some of the great books that we have in the library on the new catalogue! 📕📚 📖💛
