The online version of our school library catalogue is now up and running. The new system allows students, staff and parents to view our school library catalogue online, and students are encouraged to use this to help with research, to write reviews about books they have read, and search for new books that they may like to read.
The library catalogue (the Microlibrarian) is now searchable online. It includes over 25,000 books and audio-visual resources as well as many thousands of approved websites.
You can access the system via this link: https://u020623.microlibrarian.net/
The first time you access the system at home it may ask you to install Microsoft Silverlight; please allow this to be downloaded and installed on your computer as the system cannot run without it. You will also need to use Internet Explorer as your browser to use the library.
There is also an App called ‘iMLS’, available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android & Windows Phone 7. This App can be freely downloaded by going to your App provider and searching ‘iMLS’.
The school is strongly committed to promoting reading for pleasure. Data from the 1970 British Cohort Study provides strong evidence for the link between teenagers who read for pleasure and success in later life.
Having the library accessible in this way and having parents engaged with reading will help support our commitment to improving our student’s literacy standards. Your child should recently have received their login details for the new system, if you would like to know what these are so that you can track their borrowing history, and perhaps help them to choose their next read, please email our Librarian: Juliette.email@example.com.
