The Card Catalogue
The basic information link to all materials available in the High School Library is the Card Catalogue. There are two kinds of library catalogues - the traditional card catalogue listed on a 3x5 card and the online public access catalogue (OPAC), an electronic listing. Both catalogues list books by author, title and subject.
The Periodical Indexes
A Periodical Index in traditional format is located in the Periodicals section. This index helps you locate specific magazine/journal articles from the more than 33 periodical titles being subscribed to by the High School Library.
The Classification System
The High School Library collection is arranged according to the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) system: 000-999. The chief purpose of DDC is to provide basis for organizing materials so that they can be located quickly and easily by the clientele.
The Call Number
The Call Number which is composed of the classification number and the author number, identifies individual books and indicates where the book is shelved in the High School Library.
1. Consult either of the catalogues and check whether the High School Library has the book you are looking for.
2. Note down the call number and location symbol where the book may be found.
3. When the book is located, present to the librarian at the Circulation desk for proper marking.
4. No student should bring out any material without the proper markings. A student is held responsible for any material checked out on her card. Such that a book should not be passed on from one borrower to another but instead it has to be returned first and checked out to the next borrower.
5. Students are entitled to checked out five books at a time. Books in great demand may be recalled at any time and place on the Reserved Shelf.
6. A delinquent borrower is not allowed to borrow books from the High School Library until she settles her account.
Return/Renew the checked out books only at the Circulation Desk , on or before the due date. Always present your school I.D. for scanning purposes.
How to reserve a book
Inform the Librarian of a particular checked out book you may want to place a reservation hold. Verify the due date and come back for it. Books "placed on hold/reserved" will only be held for three days, from the day you placed the reservation hold.
Checked out materials not returned on the due date, incur a fine of PhP0.50 a day. Sundays and holidays are not included when counting the number of days a book is overdue. A fine of PhP1.00 is imposed for every day of delay in returning "FOR CLASSROOM USE ONLY" books. A fine of PhP10.00 is imposed for every day of delay in returning a Reference material.
Lost and damaged books
All lost/damaged books should be reported immediately to the Librarian.
