Library Information


As we come to the end of the calendar year the libraries across the College are beginning to stock-take the resources that have been used by the boys. Although during this time some lending will start to be restricted, boys can still access the eBook collection at any time.

Lending Policy

I would like to take the opportunity to remind everyone about the lending policy we have in the Middle School and Senior School Libraries. Of particular importance is the short-term loan of laptop chargers. Each library has a limited supply of laptop chargers that are day-loan only. At the moment the Senior Library has a number of chargers outstanding that have been with individual students for in excess of 10 days. Students who need to borrow a charger during class time are now unable to do so. This represents a serious issue for the Library as those boys in breach of the loan period are disrupting the education of others. Boys who continue to be in breach of the loan period will be restricted to only utilizing these items within the library so we can facilitate the effective use of these resources for the entire community.

Tutoring in the Library

A reminder that the library is open from 7:30am to 5:00pm Monday to Thursday with a slight change of 7:30am - 4:00pm on Friday. Many parents have asked about tutoring in the libraries across the College and so I remind everyone that the only time the library offers a tutoring service is in the lead up to the exams for Year 11 and 12 students.

Seeking help - Library@Scotch

Finally I would like to remind parents and students that you can seek assistance at any time from the library team by emailing library@scotch.wa.edu.au. By using this service we are able to provide you with a vast array of information and services. I highly encourage parents to use this service to aid their son if they are having issues finding resources for assignments. We are here to help and ready to do so.
