#diveintodatabases: Get in touch with the child within

April 19, 2016 – 11:00 am


Picture books are valuable, enjoyable resources within our campus library collections.

Bernice McIntyre, one of the wonderful education Liaison Librarians from the Strathfield campus gives a run down on a great education database:

The Source database is an excellent tool to help you get in touch with your inner child. The Source provides subject access into children’s literature with an emphasis on Australian and New Zealand literature.

It’s a great way for our primary school and early childhood teachers to provide their students with interesting thematic literature, in keeping with their units of work. Stage 6 English teachers would also find it beneficial to provide stimulus texts for their HSC “Area of Study” unit.

The Source database also includes short stories, traditional literature and poetry from around the world. The ability to search by a particular Literary Children’s Award, guarantees quality picture books are accessible at the press of a button.

Find The Source by typing “The Source” into Library Search or go to our Education Subject Guide and access it under “Other Education Databases”.
