Readers are Leaders…

Andrew Stark |  Head of Libraries

As the boys begin to prepare for the next round of assignments and extended pieces of writing, now is a good time to remind everyone about some of the Senior Library’s excellent online resources .

The most popular resources we have include: Facts on File (excellent for all subjects and most year levels), ELibrary (a very extensive collection of newspaper articles and other resources), Echo Contemporary Issues (an excellent resource that focuses on controversial issues and provides extensive arguments both for and against), and Informit TV News (an archive of free-to-air television news and current affairs programs that extends as far back as 2006).

Another very important database is the online Study Skills Handbook which gives advice on time management and preparing for assessment items. To access it go to www.studyskillshandbook.com.au and login with the following details: username – thesouthportschool; password – 17success. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me for further information.

A reminder to parents and boys of the audio and eBook collection that is available through Borrow Box. To access the full collection of nearly 500 titles, boys can either download the green Borrow Box App from the App Store, or follow the link from the Senior Library webpage.

Happy reading and researching!
