The Biblio School software package has designed by teachers and school librarians as a teaching resource specifically for the school environment (originally for primary school libraries, although it may be applicable to smaller secondary schools) and with pupils in mind.
The librarian and teaching staff can allow as much or as little student participation as is required, facilitated by the modular design of the package.
Levels of complexity can be matched to student/class/year abilities and stages of learning:-
At the simplest level pupils can interrogate the library stock database using the simple keyword search module, which supports reading levels and book reviews.
At the next stage pupils can be responsible for maintaining the issues and returns from the library.
Next is the library database itself into which books can be entered modified etc
Finally a sophisticated reporting system allows extensive statistics to be generated, manipulated, exported etc.
