Library Management computer system is called Eclipse.net.
Everything is run by the computer. There are no library tickets or card indexes. The only manual process is when the item is date stamped.
Borrowers are identified using "Identikit Registration" which uses an electronic fingerprint scanner. Usually the right thumb is used for identification.
Books are issued for a maximum of three weeks. This period is modified on the run-up to end of term. DVDs and videos are issued for three working days. When borrowers keep their books, DVDs or videos beyond the due date, overdue letters are issued.
The School Library Catalogue can be searched by clicking on the "Eclipse.net" logo on the Library's Catalogue Search page. Access to your own personal library data is possible using "My Account". Ask the Librarian for your access details. Users wishing to borrow an item which is out on loan may reserve that item. Pupils will be informed of its availability in writing via their form tutor. Items may be renewed a maximum of two times.
