I am excited to inform you of the launch of a new online version of our senior school library catalogue. 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, now searchable online, includes over 10,976 books 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://www.neatherd.org.
You will be directed to the Reading Cloud where you will be asked to search our school- Dereham Neatherd High School and enter login details.
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 planners,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.
I hope you find the new facility useful and welcome any feedback.
Mrs L Gill
