Schools Catalogue Information Service (SCIS) aims to provide schools with access to a database of consistent catalogue records created according to agreed national standards, in order to reduce the cost and duplication of effort of cataloguing resources in schools. Since its inception, SCIS has been responsible for improving the quality and consistency of cataloguing materials for schools.
SCIS catalogues a wide range of resources, both digital and hard-copy. Below is a selection of the most popular e-Books, as downloaded by your fellow SCIS subscribers in the past 12 months.

2015 SCIS subscriptions
Schools who pay their SCIS subscriptions on an annual basis will receive their invoice for SCIS early in Term 4. Payment is due by the end of 2014 to ensure continuous access. Government school systems, except Victoria and Tasmania, and a number of Catholic Dioceses coordinate access to SCIS on behalf of all their schools.
Professional Learning in Term 2, 2015
SCIS will be hosting a range of webinars over the course of Term 2, including: An Introduction to SCIS; SCIS Basic; SCIS Online; and Searching and Selection.
We will also be travelling to Queensland in May to host three workshops on Making the Most of SCIS.
