Welcome to Sandgate District SHS Library. Our library is a central hub of activity at all times of the day, offering the students and staff of SDSHS a place to learn, study, research, read and reflect.
The library space promotes a culture of learning to support students in their curriculum needs. The library spaces not only provide computers, laptops and printing facilities but also has areas for students to connect, enjoy quiet time or work in small groups.
Sandgate District SHS Library uses the 'cloud' based cataloguing system called Infiniti which gives students and staff access to 24/7 catalogued library resources online from their chosen devices. This system is both intuitive and engaging, allowing users to personalise their borrowing. Linked to this system is the Queensland State Schools Digital Library, which gives students access to thousands of eBooks and audio books. Infiniti operating system also has the capability to search the local Brisbane City Council library service database. In addition to physical and digital fiction and non-fiction resources, students of SDSHS have access to selected media programming and movies via ClickView.
The direct links to Infiniti, ClickView and the Queensland State Schools Digital Library are available on the SDSHS Sharepoint site.
Library services at SDSHS cater for both reading for pleasure and the establishment of research skills. To respect the work of original authors or creators, students are directed to use the information regarding in-text referencing and reference list creation from the QUT CITE WRITE website. Sandgate District SHS uses APA referencing standard as the preferred method of referencing.
