Accessit Library, a teacher’s best friend.
When you can access your library anywhere, anytime, it becomes more than a store of information. It becomes an integral part of the journey of learning.
Many schools use Accessit to manage and deliver their teacher resources and textbook collections. This includes lesson plans, worksheets, past exam papers, supplementary reading, and much more. Teachers can access these resources anywhere, anytime. Additionally, teachers can hide these resources from students so they won’t even know the resources are in the catalogue.
With Accessit’s One Search, your students will discover all your learning resources in a single search, including books, eBooks, PDFs, electronic documents, podcasts, websites, online digital content, subscriptions, video, audio, archives, and more. This is great for schools implementing the flip classroom environment.
More than just searching
Teacher-to-student and student-to-student book recommendations are known to spike reading engagement levels. Accessit gives teachers and students the opportunity to interact with the library catalogue, “liking” items and reading and writing reviews. Teachers can create class specific reading lists, add areas of interest, and check on the availability of resources at any time.
Perfect for any age and stage
Accessit offers unique flexibility and configuration options. This means that you can tailor Accessit to meet the needs of all users, from K-12 and above. The Web App is fun and engaging, giving students ownership and encouraging exploration.
Accessit allows you to deliver electronic documents, create reading lists, offer moderated online content, and help students search digital resources such as EBSCO, Britannica, Gale and LibGuides. Its power and ease of use makes Accessit Library the system of choice for leading schools world-wide.
Easy to use
With its easy to use interface teachers and students can search the entire school’s library, media and information resources. They’ll love being able to use their own phones and tablets to access the system whenever and wherever they want, even directly from the classroom. Accessit is so intuitive, it will quickly become part of your teaching and learning practices.
Built for today’s teaching environment.
Accessit Library gives you the connectivity, visibility, and flexibility you need as a complete school-wide resource management system.
Assisting with your teaching practice
Accessit supports teaching as much as it supports learning. Since anything can be catalogued, teachers can get creative with their classes – making book trailers, recording performances or speeches, uploading music and adding it to the catalogue so students can access it.
Media fluency and information literacy is supported through the Accessit One Search tool – a single discovery tool that gives your students one place to find independently curated, scholarly material (including all your subscription databases). This will expand your potential classroom resources exponentially and brings information literacy into the classroom. Best of all, your students only need one login to reach everything.
We believe collaboration between librarians and teachers can support teaching practices and provide a richer learning environment for students.
Teachers can request books for lessons and play the role of itinerant librarian, issuing and returning items for borrowers on the spot. The Accessit Circulation tool is not only easy to use, it can be accessed directly from the Web App, giving you the option of issuing items on a laptop or iPad whilst in the classroom. Library staff can put alert messages on student records to let teachers know important information at issue time. Overdue notices are automatically sent, and a list of overdues for each class can be sent to the homeroom teacher with a single click.
