Transcript of Orientation of CHS Library

Claremont High School Library Orientation
The Library is organized into 3 main areas
AREA 1:

FICTION
Fiction books are books written for enjoyment.
These books include authors such as Tom Clancy,
Leo Tolstoy, Stephen King and thousands of others.
AREA 2:

NON-FICTION
Nonfiction books are books written for the purpose of information. these books are bound by the Dewey Decimal or "Call Number" System of organization.

General Categories are:
000-099 Generalities
100-199 Philosophy and Psychology
200-299 Religion and Mythology
300-399 Social Sciences
400-499 Language
500-599 Natural Sciences
600-699 Technology
700-799 Arts
800-899 Literature
900-999 Geography and History
AREA 3:

REFERENCE
The Reference Section of the library is very similar to the nonfiction in organization and content. What you will find in our Reference section will be groups and collections about specific topics.
since our library is a round building,
The fiction books are found along
the perimeter wall within the library.
ALL THE NONFICTION BOOKS IN OUR LIBRARY ARE IN THE METAL BOOKSHELVES.
Other Library Amenities
Students can eat on the patio at lunch...
Students are able to use the computer lab at various times of the day. If you come during class, you will need to have a pass and check in with the circulation desk.
Students have the option to purchase
needed writing instruments

The CHS Library has two 40" flat screens. These are currently used for replaying school events such as football and basketball games , presentations with classes, organizations and community members during evening meetings. Eventually these will be a way for the school to view the "Wolfcast" and replay past athletic events. They could also be used to view plays and choral performances by Claremont High School students.
"The Well" Reading Area
This Prezi presentation is being created for the students of Claremont High School, in order to help them have a better understanding of their library. This will in turn have a dramatic effect upon their ability to research and follow directions as they progress through Claremont High School. This presentation will be added to from time to time. This will allow for the progression and growth of both the library and this presentation.
CUT & PASTE
With the current paper costs and the status of the district financially, if you have to print from the computer lab, please use the following rules to save paper:

When you find information on a website,
highlight
then cut and paste just the information you need. Some websites are very long and could consume a large portion of the paper provided.

Open a word document and paste your information there. This will allow you to get just the information you need.

When ready to print anything, (ALWAYS CHECK TO SEE THE PRINTER HAS PAPER FIRST), please only hit the print button ONCE. Every time you hit the print button, the computer sends another job to the printer. If your work does not come out right away...have patience! Better to be cautious than wasteful.
Electronic Card Catalogs
Students looking for books in the
library will have the ability to search for their book by using the electronic card catalog found on the front computers. Open the Firefox browser and the home page should be the researcher.

If the browser doesn't have the researcher as the home page, the program is now web-based and can be accessed from any CUSD computer using the following address:

http://10.2.20.123:83/researcher

This will allow more students more access from their classroom to see if a book is available.
Fiction books
are organized by the first three (3) letters of the authors last name.
In "your" library, the fiction books are found along the perimeter wall. they begin with "A", by Lincoln's head and end with "Z", by the front door.
This reading area has been created to invite students to read and work in an atmosphere of calm and focus.
Biographies can be found around "The Well". Biographies are shelved alphabetically by the person's last name and are always found by the "first" three (3) letters of the person's last name.
THE SPINE LABEL ON NONFICTION BOOKS ARE SIMILAR TO FICTION. THE ONE BIG DIFFERENCE ARE THE "CALL NUMBERS" THAT ARE ADDED.
