Welcome to Librarian Talk, the place where Librarians get to talk about their roles, their unique situations and how Accessit Library has helped them. This week, we speak with Gabrielle Wales, Librarian from Broadland High Ormiston Academy about how she makes the most of Accessit Library.
|

I am the sole librarian at this 11 – 16 academy. I have a complete passion for books and the plethora of advantages that students can reap from them. I love to instil a lifelong love of learning in my students and encourage them to question everything, even me. My greatest recent personal achievement is learning all the different ways I can use Accessit Library to reach and encourage my students to keep reading during lockdown.

Tell us about your library! What makes it unique?

My wonderful student librarians.

What is a challenge that you faced in your library recently?

Keeping track of all the resources.

How did Accessit Library help you solve this challenge?

Since migrating to Accessit, I now feel I have full control over my physical resources. Cataloguing is as simple as is the issue and return of books. It also allows me to show exactly where books are, for example on display, in a classroom or awaiting repair.

How has your attitude changed towards the challenge you solved with Accessit Library, now that you’ve worked through it?

No more tearing my hair out trying to figure out where books are.

What do you like the most about Accessit Library?

How easy it is to use right out of the box, and the constant stream of new uses I keep finding.

What tips could you give to librarians to help improve their remote learning experience?

When you are receiving online training just watch and listen. Don’t take notes they will only confuse you when you try to read them later. The training videos are so comprehensive and always available you can always check them out when you are attempting unknown tasks. You can also print out the lessons to use later.
