Finding a Book in the Library
(You can do it!)
Once Upon A Time
These days, most students use the internet to do their research. One year, a group of grade 12s admitted they avoided using books because they didn't know how to find them in the library.
Well, the teacher-librarian showed them how. Giddiness followed.
Where you need to start
- Open the "Applications" page, and click on the "Library Catalogue" icon. The page is in alphabetical order. The icon is of a set of books.
- Alternatively, go to fmsslibrary.weebly.com . Go to the eResources tab. The first section is called, "Quick Links". A link to the FMSS Library Catalogue is first on the list.
- Or click on the "Library" button on your BYOD page.
For example, if you were researching how global warming affects the earth's water systems, put in the keywords, "global warming water".
Click on the "words or phrase" button.
There's a lot of other useful information on the page, but the call number is what we use to locate a book in the library.
Time to stand up!
Since our call number starts with "551", we're heading to the 500s, or the Science section.
Still confused about Call Numbers?
