Library website

Posted by SalesianLibrary on April 2, 2009

I don’t know how many of you are familiar with the school’s intranet ‘Learning Point‘ or with the area allocated to the Library (Resource Centre) but over the past couple of years we’ve been building that up for students to use. There are different search engines you can use, many different online resources, pathfinders, articles about issues and even an area for some light entertainment. It’s a really handy resource, especially with the pathfinders because they list some great websites about various different topics. All the searching has been done for you, all you have to do is click!

To get to the resource centre all you have to do is go into Learning Point and in the drop down menu select Resource Centre.
