S1 Library and Information Skills

During their first term at Bishopbriggs Academy all S1 pupils participate in a short course on library and information skills.  This equips pupils with the necessary skills to get the best out of the Library and its resources.  The course covers topics such as fiction and non-fiction and how they are arranged on the Library shelves; reference material; researching information including the use of indexes; research skills such as skimming and scanning and plagiarism and the general organisation and use of the Library.  Pupils also visit the Library to borrow books as part of the English department's individual reading programme and with other subjects to use the Library's resources and ICT facilities.
