Your Library Is in Your Planner!

Welcome back to school!  Now that school is in full swing and you are learning your way around middle school, you'll want to know that for the first time ever the library is a part of your planner!  So if you're at home trying to do your homework, and you need access to some of the library's fantastic online resources just turn to page 58 and you will find a list of what we offer, along with the user name and passwords!  If you are an avid user of the library, you will want to create an account.  To create an account, all you need is your student ID (coming soon!  Or stop by the library for the information) and page 59 from the planner.

What Should I Read Next? There's an App for That!

Do you have a smart phone or iTouch?  Then if you're looking for something to read, you'll want to download this cool new app!  This will help you find the best books for young adults.  There are new picks every day, plus permanent lists by genre, awards, authors, etc.

If you enjoy this book app, consider downloading some more!  Want to search Goldenview's catalog from your handheld device?  Then download our catalog app!  Once you've installed it, you will have to choose Anchorage School District, and then you can browse the district's catalog.  You can also place items on hold or renew your books if you know know your library ID number and password (email librarians_goldenview at asdk12.org for that)!

If you want to access one of Goldenview's Gale databases, use the My School app.  After downloading choose Alaska, then choose Goldenview and then our password (email librarians_goldenview at asdk12.org  for that) you will have access to Opposing Viewpoints and the Virtual Reference Library.

Need help formatting a bibliography, try EasyBib's helpful app!  Just scan the barcode of your book, and you get its bibliography!

If you need help with any of your homework assignments you can use Tutor.com They have an app too!


Have fun with your new apps!
