Year 12 ICT Birmingham library Trip
As part of the Level 3 ICT course, we recently took the Year 12 ICT students to the Birmingham library. The library is one of the largest public libraries in the world and is spread over 10 levels of varying size and usage. It is a centre of excellence for literacy, research, study, skills development, entrepreneurship, creative expression and engaging information.
The students were given the opportunity to explore the IT systems used at the library and how technology supports the organisation of the library resources. They were able to understand how the library management information system is used to store, organise, share and retrieve vital information needed to carry out daily operational functions. All the students thoroughly enjoyed the visit and found it to be a valuable experience!
