The link to the OPAC (Library World) is available on the bottom of every page on this Libguide.
Once in the OPAC, type your search term in the box. You may search by title, author, keyword, or subject. From the list, click on the record of the item you wish to locate.
Under Holdings, "Available" tells you how many copies of the book, if any, are currently on the shelf: A zero "0" next to "Available" means all copies are currently checked out.
Look for the call number of the item you wish to find on the shelf. Nonfiction titles will have a Dewey Decimal number on the spine of the book. B denotes a biography, along with the first 3 letters of the subject’s last name. Fiction books are arranged by genre. Therefore, you will find a genre such as Realistic Fiction, Fantasy, Suspense etc. listed as the call number. The genre listing will be followed by the first three letters of the author's last name.
Textbooks are issued during Eagle Prep (at the beginning of school). If you need a book after Eagle Prep, see Mrs. Ellis in the AP office. All fees, including library debts, must be paid before you are issued textbooks. If you need to pay fees, see the bookkeeper Mrs. Gordon.
