Your class needs to walk quietly and sensibly in and around the library.
The books are divided into three main areas.
- Fiction (arranged in alphabetical order by Author's Surname)
- Non- Fiction (arranged in Dewey Classification Order, divided into ten main subjects)
- Picture Books and Young Readers
The home of Junior Librarian features the book interface. The book interface hosts a number of interactive links that you can click on. Access a feature of the system by choosing an icon or button from the book interface.
How to borrow books (Issuing a resource)
Click on the Circulate button from the book interface on the home page. The circulate box will be displayed. Scan the book barcode using the barcode reader or use the keyboard to manually type it in.
