Digital Library

We are excited to announce that we have launched an Online Library – a collection of eBooks and eAudiobooks that our students and staff can access anytime, anywhere.

Membership of our JCSP Library Project Digital Library is free for students and staff in all JCSP/DEIS schools.

Our Digital Library is a centrally managed online eBook and eAudiobook lending library.  The collection consists of a wide range of teenage and young adult titles to suit all year groups, interests and ability levels.  In addition, the library hosts a collection of titles to support teacher CPD.  The collection currently consists of over 5,500 unique titles, with multiple copies and/or class sets of many of these, bringing the overall total to just under 9,000 items. New titles are being added on an ongoing basis.  Members can access and download books from the library anytime, anywhere – to a PC, an eReader or a Smart device. 

The rolling out of free membership of our Digital Library to all JCSP/DEIS schools in the country (250+ schools / 130,000+ students / 10,000+ staff members) is ongoing.  To date, over 75,000 individual students and 6,000 staff from over 170 schools have been set up with library membership. Borrowing levels are increasing year on year with over 22,000 items borrowed from the library in 2018-2019 – an 80% increase on the previous year..
