Carinya eLibrary Webpage allows access to a range of digital resources for leisure time reading and for research purposes.

There are two different types of digital print resources available:

  1. Carinya eBook Lending Facility allows students and teachers to download books which can then be read offline on up to 6 electronic devices (computer or compatible eReader (not Kindle)). These books are loaned for a period of 14 days, after which time they will be automatically disabled.
  2. Reference and Non-Fiction eBooks, and online databases provide access to information that can only be read online. These include the Infobase ebook Collection, Infobase Databases (Ancient & Medieval History; Modern World History and Science Online), Encyclopaedia Britannica and resources provided by other online library sites. These resources provide reliable and scholarly information for students and teachers.

Note: These eCollections and databases can also be accessed by logging in to the School's Library Intranet page and also via the library OPAC (Oliver 5).

In addition it is possible to link to Carinya's ClickView Video Library Online from the Carinya eLibrary Webpage.
