Ruyton’s New Library website

Mrs Julie Purcell, Director of Library Resource Centre at Ruyton Girls school discusses the importance of the new library.

The Ruyton Library has always been a vital part of our School community. In order for this to continue, we needed a single access point for our expanding digital collections. As the School year began we launched the new Library website, serving as an intuitive access point for all of our online resources.

As digital citizens our students need to access, analyse and build new understanding from a range of sources, in a range of formats. We are fortunate here at Ruyton not only to have our comprehensive print collections but also we have developed an extensive digital collection.

The new Library webpage is a wonderful time-saving device for the busy student, as well as functioning as the perfect gateway to reliable and authoritative information. Our subscription eBooks and databases are high quality and targeted to meet our students’ curriculum and recreational needs. These resources are superior to information freely available on the Internet.

The Ruyton Library website brings together all of our resources, providing the School community with improved and direct access to:

  • The Library catalogue and all of our resources, both print and electronic
  • Our comprehensive collections of eBooks, eJournals, video streaming, online newspapers and databases
  • Reading lists
  • Curriculum materials
  • Services, such as reserving books and renewing borrowing
  • The Lit Club blog and our Senior School Instagram feed

This gateway to our rich online resources helps us to meet the research needs of our School community, anytime, anywhere.
