To inspire a love for learning, reading, inquiry and innovation.
Bialik College Library subscribes to a variety of Databases to support the Curriculum.
Specifically they are targeted to our Middle and Senior students, however our Primary students are not forgotten.
Curated Guides will contain links from the databases that are relevant to the topic.
Databases are a trusted source of information.
QR Codes have been created for each guide and are visible on each introduction page.
Codes have also been created for lists of books available on each topic. These are found on the Library Books page of each guide.
LibGuides are basically websites which are specifically curated to support your curriculum needs.
In collaboration with myself and subject teachers Guides provide students will a balanced starting point for their topic and research requirements.
Each guide will include links to relevant databases, websites and audio visual resources.
Videos are selected both from ClickView and YouTube and are sourced with the topic in mind.
Either physical and/or eBooks available from the Library are also referenced in the Guide.
