Congratulations to South Australian public schools!

You now have free access to SCIS Authority Files and SCIS Subject Headings as well as ongoing access to SCISWeb for the next 3 years (2010-2012), as a result of an agreement made by The Department of Education and Children’s Services with SCIS.

For those schools who are unfamiliar with the SCIS service, or those who have used SCIS in the past but would like to learn more about our services, we will soon be running a series of training sessions “Making the most of SCIS”  for South Australian schools. Those who responded to our earlier online survey regarding the training sessions will be contacted directly but you will also be able to register online via SCISWeb.  Once dates are confirmed, we will also be posting more information here on the blog, so keep watching this space!

CSU students visit SCIS offices….

…and were sadly disappointed by the lack of books and general  “hive-like activity” … 🙁

We did give them a very nice powerpoint presentation on SCIS cataloguing and subject access though, so hopefully they thought it was worth the trip anyway! Thanks to the magic of  Slideshare I was able to include the powerpoint below for those who are interested in SCIS cataloguing standards and subject access in general.
