Accessing Online Resources
How to access the library catalogue and online resources.
Option 2: go directly through http://classm8.parra.catholic.edu.au/ On the Apps landing you can access Oscar and then click on the e-Library link to the right.
Note: If you are using a mobile device, it's probably best to use Option 1 (in and out of school) or access directly through the NagleELibrary app (in school).
Locating Print Resources
Use the search box to find print resources that are located in the Nagle College library. This process is simple to follow, but see the library staff if you need help.
Locating Staff and Student eBooks
Once you reach this page, you can access a great range of staff eBooks to read on your laptops and mobile devices.
See the library staff for help using the eBooks.
Locating Online Resources
You can search this database in the same way you would search a regular library catalogue with a keyword/subject/author/title search. You can also do a more advanced search to further narrow your results. The key is to experiment and once you have the hang of using this database, it could become one of the first places you and your students go to for research projects.
You can also search within general topics (eg. Current Issues), which are then broken up into further sub-topics (eg. Animal Rights). Keep in mind that the listed topics have quite an American focus so it is probably better to do a general/advanced search.
One of the great things about this database is that you can create an account and organise your research into folders so that you can readily access resources whenever you need them. When you locate a relevant resource, you can add it to the folder. From here you can view the full text, print, email, save, create notes to annotate the source and even cite the source for reference lists/bibliographies.
