A brilliant service and resource for Members.
I am Doreen and I have recently taken over the resource centre volunteer role. I have known about the resource centre for years, but somehow never got round to using it until I was put in charge of it. I have noticed the main users of the resources are tutors. Which is great and tutors please continue to get in touch and borrow the books and educational resources. That’s what they are there for.
However, few other members seem to be making use of this fantastic resource. I am not sure what the barriers are for everyone. For myself my lack of use was down to not really understanding how to use the website to search for things. Also, it wasn’t like I could just pop to Stirling from East Kilbride (the way I could my local council library).
So I would like to provide a quick introductory guide to Dyslexia Scotland’s Resource Centre. Members of Dyslexia Scotland can:-
- Borrow 2 books at a time
- For up to 3 months (and extensions can be requested)
- Books/resources can be sent in the mail
- Books can be requested by email at email@example.com or by calling 01786 446650.
You Can Search the Resource Centre Books:-
- In the member’s area of Dyslexia Scotland’s website http://www.dyslexiascotland.org.uk/
- You will need to sign in. At the top of the HOME screen on the purple navigation bar you will find “Member login”
- Click on “Member message board”
- Next click on Dyslexia Scotland Resource Centre
- Click on the link http://library.dyslexiascotland.org.uk on the next screen.
- Click the Books tab at the top left of the screen
- You can then search for what you are looking for (try fiction/author/keyword).
I’m normally in the office in Stirling on a Monday or a Tuesday (10:30am – 3pm). More information about our resource centre can be found here.
