In the 21st century, school libraries need to consider their physical and online spaces, the role of the teacher librarian, and the move to digital content and access. For students and staff 24/7 access to resources is important, as is providing resources in a variety of formats

In most schools, the school library catalogue is the only place where users can search for school-owned/licensed resources all in one place.

Library staff have prioritised organising the physical library space in ways that are attractive and encourage users to visit and explore. As well as serving our users who are visitors, browsers and borrowers of physical items in a physical library space, we now need to serve our library users accessing and downloading resources in virtual spaces.
