Seattle Academy Library
Welcome to a NEW School Year - October 2015
WELCOME to the Land of New
Check out our new Library website
Our new website is mobile responsive, built with modern code (HTML5, CSS3, and Bootstrap 3.2) and hosted on Amazon servers. Mobile responsive means you can also access this site on your phone or tablet.
As of 10/1/15 most of the single sign-on databases can be accessed (at school and at home) with the log in below. Single sign-on means that during any given searching session if you sign in to a particular SSO database, the next one you access should open automatically.
Greg Relaford and I are hard at work to provide you with this efficient log-in leaving behind forever a spaghetti list of ids and passwords. The database page contains a temporary password document which you can access with the password "timecat". I'll leave this page up while we continue to sort out password issues. There will always be a few databases that cannot utilize single sign-on and I will work hard to make those visible to you on the database page.
You can always reach me at kjohnson@ and I look forward to working with all of you this coming academic year.
New Library Purchases
You can see the new resources added to the library in September by going here to the library blog:
If you like this kind of thing, and many do, search for "cut book art", or just book art to find hundreds of examples of this unusual art form.
New Contest - Time Sensitive
FLAGS: Did you know that the whole world now has a flag? First one to send a picture of the world flag to kjohnson@, wins a cool prize. This is a time-sensitive contest.
Don't despair. Get some Soap for Writer's Block and let me know how it works. If you are in 10th grade, you will have a soap project in the spring trimester. Writer's Block Soap should spark your creativity.
