Onslow College Library
Students are WELCOME to use the library for study, research and quiet reading.
Our aim is to provide resources:
- which are useful and relevant to your studies;
- which will deepen your understanding of people, the world we live in, and the languages we use;
and to help you learn how to access and use those resources.
Generally, the library is open all day from 8am to 4pm including intervals and all lunchtimes.
If you need help, ask any of these people:
Mrs Barbara Walker: Librarian / Library Manager:
Mrs Rosaleen Davin: Librarian
Ms Debbie Shephard: Librarian
Mr Peter May: Library Assistant
Ms Diana Molloy: Textbook Resource Assistant
Student Assistants: You! We need new applicants!
Adult Helpers and Duty Teachers.
You can borrow all resources except reference books and some magazine titles.
Fiction and Non-Fiction 3 week loan
Magazines 2 day loan
Information File items 2 day loan
CD-Rom/Videos Overnight loan
The library intranet page gives access to:
Index New Zealand
And the Librarian’s lists of recommended websites.
We have 18 internet-accessible computers for student use. The library catalogue and library intranet pages are available from every computer in the school.
Students can check which books are issued to them by clicking on 'My Library-Borrowing Details' and entering their student number.
Overdue Loan Information
Our students are responsible for all items issued in their name. They can check their borrowing record at any time by going to the library pages on the intranet, clicking 'My Library', and entering their student number. Parents and caregivers are routinely advised of any items which are well overdue because, unfortunately, students will be invoiced for lost items.
If parents have any queries about overdues, please contact the library - phone: 478 8189 ext. 846
The library has a colour photocopier/printer. This is operated either from a computer or by scanning your student ID card. See library staff if you need help.
Two scanners are available in the library.
Textbooks from the English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, History, Geography, PE, Languages, Classics, and Economics departments, are administered by the library too. We strongly urge students to write their name on the slips provided inside textbooks so they can distinguish which textbook is theirs! Otherwise, students can check their borrowing record on the library pages of the intranet to make sure that the barcode there matches the barcode on the book. For queries about textbooks, contact the library or Diana Molloy - Phone 478 8189 Ext 846. Diana.Molloy@onslow.school.nz
