It's That Time Again.....Time to Remind Students How to Find Books on Our Shelves
At the beginning of every year, I review with our students the steps they need to remember as they look for a book on our library shelves. I am reminded just how many steps and skills the student need in order to navigate any library! It is in this locating that students have to put all their skills together - search terms (which transfers to Google searches!), alphabetizing, number order, fiction, nonfiction, call numbers, and shelf organization, just to name a few. Our greatest tool is our library catalog Destiny Quest, a perfectly named database because students really are on a quest to find their books. At the end of the quest, they have a wonderful book to read.
