Student Info for Your Google Classroom - Please Post!
If your students are having problems with their CBs, have them go to this link for help! Students will fill out a Google Form and pick a day to come to the Library and turn in their CBs. They will be given loaners to use until their CBs are repaired.
Please Promote the Library Website
Please encourage your students to access my website (bit.ly/ANHSLibrary) and the resources that are found there. Students have access to several wonderful databases, including Cameron’s Collection (Health and Wellness eBooks), Gale, ABC-Clio, SIRS Issues Researcher, ProQuest, and more. They also have access to our online library catalog and WebPath Express (click on school name to access from the left-hand menu), which allows them to search vetted websites.
In order to help students find information, achieve, and be successful, many student tutorials on how to research, evaluate sources, identify misinformation, access apps and e-texts, and use our online catalog already exist under the Student Help tab. Encourage your students to bookmark the Library website and follow me on Instagram @librarygirl7801 and/or Twitter @anhs_lib. I would love it if you could post the links in your Google Classroom!
Want to request a special collection? Let me know what you are interested in, and I will curate a collection with a shareable link for you!

Bookshare and Read & Write for Students with IEPs or a 504 Plan
Any students with 504 or IEPs can access all of their materials in ebook, audiobook, or large print form. Bookshare has an immense collection that includes most textbooks and thousands of free fiction and non-fiction reading materials.
Any teachers or counselors that want to set a student up with Bookshare just needs to let me know who the student is, whether they are on a 504 or an IEP plan, and what their disability is. I can set up an account for the student and assign specific textbooks or reading books or even an entire reading list based on a students' interests (ex. sports books, graphic novels, reluctant reader books, etc...) in about 5 minutes. After setting up an account for the student, I can then share their login credentials with them as well as my tutorials for how to get started accessing their books.
You can email me the student's information, or you can fill out the Bookshare Enrollment Google form for your student(s).
Students with IEPs also have access to the Premium edition of the Read & Write App through the District's site license. I have tutorials for them on how to use the app, and I can also Zoom with them to show them how to use the app in real time if they need any extra help getting started.
Here is the link to my Bookshare and Read & Write App tutorials on my website. Just scroll down to the resource you are interested in.
