Resource Centre

 

Morayfield State High School has a well-resourced library supporting teaching and learning across the school.  The library services the resource needs of the school community through their extensive print collection and online access to reference material.  The library is staffed by a teacher librarian and library technicians who are able to support you with your resource needs.
The Resource Centre has computers available for use during breaks, including before and after school, printing services and laminating.  Our collection includes a fantastic fiction section which is constantly updated with latest releases, non-fiction reference sources for those seeking information, current articles published in Australian media on a range of contemporary issues, picture books, newspapers and magazines.
 All textbooks are now collected and returned through the Resource Centre.  The borrowing period of textbooks is dependent upon the subject.  Most textbooks are borrowed for the year and are due immediately after the student’s last piece of assessment.  When the book is only borrowed for a specific section of the curriculum (eg. Novel), the resource is due immediately following the assessment or completion of the unit of work.
The library is open from 8:00am to 3.30pm every day with students able to access it during their breaks.   Students may borrow 3 books with a borrowing period of 2 weeks.  If more resources are required or if they are required for a longer period, this must be negotiated with the teacher librarian.

 

 MSHS Online Library and Catalogue
Our library catalogue is now available online.  The link is available here. The catalogue allows students to access articles, ebooks, and documentaries either at home at school.  To log in students use their MISID, with the default password = Pass.  Students are then able to create their own password for security. We have also created an online library which may be accessed from school or home.  The library is through eLearn where students use their MISID and network password.  Please ask staff in the Resource Centre if you are having difficulties using the site.  Use this link to enter the Online Library.
The online library will contain many resources, including
·         how to research and how to reference;
·         digital copies of the latest Spinney Press;
·         newspaper articles on topics relevant to your assessment;
·         links to websites recommended by your teachers; and
·         links to research, reports and publications to help with your assessment tasks.
