The PHSG Library is located on the first floor in the The Annexe.
Who can use the library?
To ensure that all year groups have a fair chance to use the library we have assigned the following days:
Year 7 – Monday break and lunch
Year 8 – Tuesday break and lunch
Year 9 – Wednesday break and lunch
Year 7 – Thursday break and lunch
Year 8 – Friday break and lunch
Year 12 and 13 can use the library every day during lesson time. Both year groups must remain socially distanced from each other and wear masks when the library is crowded.
New Library Management System AccessIT
With limited access to the library this academic year, we felt it was important to find a school Library Management System that would make browsing and borrowing books from home much easier. During the lock down we have been busy setting up an amazing new library system called AccessIT that we think students are going to love. Some of the new features to look forward to are:
- You will now be able to log into the Library catalogue anywhere you have a computer or smartphone.
- Find resources for your school work - including information books, fiction, websites, magazines and journals, links to other sources and more
- Find suggestions for good reads
- Reserve books and other items
- Renew online and keep on top of your loans
- Create your own reading lists
- Read and write book reviews (earn house points for your book reviews)
This service will be available after the Easter Break and a link to the s7tem will be published on this page.
Ebooks - Wheelers
As well as finding a new Library Management System, we have added on an eBook facility that integrates seamlessly with AccessIT. This means that when students are browsing our library catalogue, they can browse and borrow any of our eBooks anytime and anywhere.
Wheelers will allow you to:
- Discover and borrow ebooks anywhere, anytime
- Access a huge number of titles and is very straightforward and easy to use
- Change the font, text size and background colour of text for all eBooks.
- Compile favourites lists and see previews of titles before borrowing
This service will be available after the Easter Break and a link to the system will be published on this page.
