Overview

The LS library is central to implementing, enriching and supporting the teaching and learning program of our school.

Each campus has a library and its own online catalog, which can be searched individually or as a group, using the Follett Destiny software -- see zis.ch.

Digital resources are shared between the campuses, using the Libguides toolkit -- see libguides.zis.ch.
