Library sessions for Year 12 students
Year 12 students have been reminded how the library can support their learning and deepen their subject knowledge.
Librarian Miss Robinson has been holding sessions with Sixth Formers during their free periods to signpost them to resources including A level subject review magazines, online support and subject-related texts.
Miss Robinson said: “I introduced students to some new resources which they have not have accessed before, including Issues Online, and the A level subject review magazines which are packed with topical articles, cutting-edge research and expert exam advice to deepen their subject knowledge and develop independent learning skills.
“Our Year 12s are settling into their studies, and the session was a brilliant opportunity for students to browse the non-fiction shelves related to their chosen subjects, try out the online resources they have access to, and to remind them that I am open to requests for stock that could support their studies.”
The Year 12s also heard from Louise Aldridge, Library Development Officer at Cambridgeshire Libraries, who gave them an overview of resources available both online and at Wisbech Library.
This included the online library service and web resources such as the libraries e-offer.
Students learnt they can even access online theory driving test practice exams and virtual driving experiences.
Louise also spoke to the students about the volunteering opportunities available through The Library Presents programme of events.
Louise said: “I was very impressed with the high level of engagement amongst the students. It was heartening to see them signing up for library membership in order to fully access the library offer; hopefully indicating that they felt it was of relevance to them for both their studies and their future careers.”
Following the sessions, Miss Robinson said a number of Sixth Formers have visited the library to borrow subject-related books.
