Library Online Catalogue

Dear Parents/Carers

Library Online catalogue

Our online version of our senior school library catalogue 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, now searchable online, includes over 10,976 books including ebooks and audio-visual resources as well as many thousands of approved websites.  You can access the system via the library link on the school website at: http://neatherd.org/

The first time you access the system 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.

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’.

Having the library accessible in this way and having parents engaged with reading will help to support our commitment to improving our student’s literacy standards.  Your child will shortly receive their login details for the new system, which should be stuck in their student planner, 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 me at: Lorraine_gill@neatherd.org

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. With this in mind every Year 7 student here at Neatherd chooses a new book from a selection of thirteen great titles which are theirs to keep with our compliments. Once ordered, these should arrive at the end of this half term and will be handed out in their library lesson.

I hope you find the new facility useful and welcome any feedback.

Yours sincerely
