Library Resources  

Book Club
For Removes, Shells and Thirds via Teams.

Reading promotion through Teams  
Removes and Shells will be able to access a library channel on their English class Team.  We will use this to share videos, reviews and any other things that may be of interest. We are hoping to extend this to 3rds and 4ths too. 

Virtual Visit 
There will be a virtual visit from author, Tom Palmer, on 28 January for Removes. Details on how to join will be emailed to pupils.

Click here for E-book library  
Many students have now registered for this, which provides access to e-book and audiobooks.  The easiest way to access this is to download the app – eplatform by Wheelers.  You then need to find the school by searching for ‘The King’ – we show up as The King’s School, UK.  Students then need to register their details.  If they have registered previously but have forgotten their password, please let me know and I can reset this. 

Click here for Library catalogue
We have an online library catalogue which shows all the physical books in the library, links to the ebook collection and contains information about our online sources.  We also use this to recommend books on certain topics.  These can be found under ‘quick lists’ on the home page.  In order to reserve books, students need to be logged on.  This can be done by using their usual school logon details.  

Reserving available books will ensure that the books are ready for pupils as soon as we return to school. Reserving books on loan means that pupils have the best chance of getting them quickly once they are returned.

Click here for Online resources
These are listed on Firefly and through a link on the library catalogue homepage (once logged in).  Our online resources include Britannica Online (excellent resource for all ages), JSTOR (for 6th form), Complete Issues (excellent for articles and statistics about any kind of current issue) and Newspapers for Schools.  We also have many subject specific resources, such as The Economist and we subscribe to the Review Magazine archive, which is an invaluable resource for A-Level students.
