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 would like to congratulate the 2014 ABDA Australian Book Design Awards winners. Beautifully designed books look great in an OPAC! A selection of the winners and shortlisted titles are displayed below.
Also, Read for Australia, part of National Literacy and Numeracy Week, is being held on Friday 29 August at 2pm. During this time, teachers, students and parents across the country will be reading Sunday Chutney by Aaron Blabey.
