Borrowing at the Library

Library Catalouge (OLIVER)

The school library uses OLIVER to manage student borrowing and to catalogue available resources.

The catalogue is avaliable for all users 24/7.

Students are actively encouraged to use the system to take responsibility for their borrowed items; to check their loans, overdues, renew and reserve books; and explore the many resources available to them.
