Teachers and students are encouraged to recommend new content for the library. When making a recommendation please include as much information as possible. This helps us help you because it makes it easier and quicker to identity exactly what it is you are requesting. When requesting books and eBooks we recommend you include the ISBN or international standard book number. This is often the number above the book barcode. ISBNs often start with the numbers 978.
Please note: items in the library are shared resources for the whole school. If the item you are recommending is only going to be used by you, or your department, it needs to be purchased by the department. All the items that the Kerferd Library purchases are available under the existing library loans policy as documented on CompliSpace.
Teachers can book the library spaces via mConnect. From the main mConnect menu select Resource Booking (A), then select the Kerferd Library tab (B) and the space you want to book (C). Slect the space you want to book and then chose the date and time to finish you booking. See the following image for details.
