The BC SRC is in full swing! Here’s a quick and handy reference guide to your SRC essentials:
Too many/too few Reading Records? The BC SRC Exchange Blog to the rescue!
The SRC Exchange Blog lives at http://kidssrc.bclibrary.ca/index.php/blog/ Notify other libraries that you are running low on something (Materials Wanted!) and/or that you have extra materials to share (Materials Available!). As you know, this allows us to be a whole lot more flexible in matching materials to shifting demographics!
The SRC contact at your library should have login info.) If you can’t find it or never received it, just let me know and I’ll resend it. Also, libraries are welcome to have more than one contributor. If you or someone in your library would like to be added as a contributor, just send me an email!
How to Post to the Blog
Here’s instructions how: http://kidssrc.libraries.coop/blog/how-to-post-to-the-exchange/
