School Libraries Resources Service
Resources and special collections
The school libraries resources service provides loans of books, artefacts, DVDs and other educational resources to schools to support delivery of the National Curriculum.
Details of all resources available from the SLRS are included in the online library catalogue. In acquabrowser use 'select location' to find items belonging to the school libraries resources service after entering your search term. In the classic catalogue you need to opt to search the whole database which includes SLRS items.
You can find details of our special collections (educational artefacts, story-sacks, single author collections and reproduction art prints) in the directories section on the right of this page. These collections can be included as part of your school's loan request.
A librarian can also provide professional advice and support for schools in the development of their own library resource centres, and help schools in buying new books for their libraries.
The service is available to all schools in the London Borough of Barnet on a subscription basis. Subscriptions are for one financial year at a time and are based on pupil numbers.
Registration and loans
To use the service for the first time please complete and return the school libraries registration form. Teachers wishing to borrow a number of items should fill in a loan request form for each term, giving as much detail of their requirements as possible.
