Our services and resources


The 0800 LIB LINE (0800 5425463) advisory service provides support and answers to your questions on any aspect of school library development. The service is staffed from Monday to Friday, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Cataloguing service

Our Record Manager tool enables your school library team to find and download catalogue records and import them into your ILS (integrated library system).

Library learning environments

Information, resources and case studies can stimulate thinking about future design of school libraries. We aim to help principals, school leaders, library staff and other stakeholders imagine new library spaces that achieve your goals as you work to develop your services.

Your library online

Your library’s online presence includes many elements, from selecting a suitable Integrated Library System (ILS) for 24/7 access, to its web presence and interactivity with users, to RFID technology for streamlining issues and returns.
