The Ruyton Library has always been a vital part of our School community. In order for this to continue, we needed a single access point for our expanding digital collections. As this new school year begins, we are excited to launch the new Library website, it serves as an intuitive access point for all of our online resources.
As digital citizens our students need to access, analyse and build new understanding from a range of sources in a range of formats. We are fortunate here at Ruyton not only to have our extensive and comprehensive print collections but also beyond that, we have built up a strong digital collection in recent years.
The new Library webpage is a wonderful time-saving tool for the busy student and a perfect gateway to reliable and authoritative information. Our subscription eBooks and databases are high quality and targeted to meet our students’ curriculum and recreational needs. These resources are indeed superior to information freely available on the Internet.
The Ruyton Library website located at https://library.ruyton.vic.edu.au/ brings together all of our resources, providing the School community with improved and direct access to:
• The Library catalogue and all of our resources, both print and electronic
• Our comprehensive collections of eBooks, eJournals, video streaming, online newspapers and databases
• Reading lists
• Curriculum materials
• Services such as reserving books and renewing borrowing
• The Literature Club blog and our Senior School Instagram feed
• General information and news.
We trust that this gateway to our rich online resources helps us to meet the research needs of our School community, anytime, anywhere.
