For many years now, the library has been subscribing to Essential Articles from Carel. This useful resources collates articles from many sources on current and controversial issues and provides an excellent research resource for those doing discursive essays in particular.
We now have an online subscription to Complete Issues from Carel. This gives access to Essential Articles, Fact File, and Key Organisations. The books are also available in the library.
This is a site licence which allows pupils and staff to be able to get access from any computer in school or from home. General access is available via a username and password which is available from Mrs Sinclair or on the posters displayed in the library or on noticeboards in the English corridor.
Individual access is available to pupils and staff of Stromness Academy. If you would like your own login details, please let me know. In future this will allow access to additional features not yet developed.
