    Introducing our Summer 2020 Bitesize Library Teach Meets

    by Hampshire School Library Service - (SLS HQ) -

    Following guidance on social distancing while striving to provide our termly CPD sessions, our Summer 2020 Library Teach Meet content will be delivered electronically. Our SLS advisers have been hard at work creating Bitesize presentations for both primary and secondary library and teaching staff which are being made available on our Moodle over the next few weeks. These 10-15 minutes presentations cover the content that is normally provided in person during our termly Teach Meets; including SLS updates, guidance and tips for working on your Library Management System and reviews on new titles for all year groups. 

    The Bitesize Library Teach Meet presentations available starting today on our Moodle include:

    • SLS Update & New Moodle Pages
    • Using Libresoft LMS
    • Using your Capita LMS

    You can access the content here. If you do not know your Moodle login with us please get in touch by emailing hq.sls@hants.gov.uk. Check back next week for more Bitesize presentations! Follow us on Twitter @HantsSLS for updates as well. 


    #ReadAtHome - Reading Challenge 2020

    by Hampshire School Library Service - (SLS HQ) -

    Hampshire SLS would like to encourage all pupils to read during this stay at home period. Why not take part in our #ReadAtHome challenge? We are asking pupils to read 6 books (although you can read more if you wish) and submit a short review for each title here. If you run out of books at home, why not try the great range of titles on the SLS ePlatform? 

    You can direct your pupils to our Moodle Homepage to complete their review. Once completed pupils can download a certificate, which will be made available shortly!

    This is an open Challenge to our subscribing schools and beyond. So please feel free to share!

    To learn more about how to set up your school's eBook platform visit our Moodle page or contact your local centre.
