Welcome to OPAC!
We are delighted to announce Westmount's new Online Public Access Catalogue, otherwise known as OPAC!
OPAC is our new system for reserving books from our own Learning Commons. I will deliver student reserved books to their homeroom, or arrange a curb-side pick up for those that are online at home.
Each student will have a Learning Commons Code, which will be provided to their teacher and a library card will be printed out for each individual student. The password will be the same for every student, being Pass1630. You are unable to change your password, but please contact me if you have concerns or difficulties with your login.
Student books can be taken home, and exchanged every 2 weeks. Safety practices will be in place to ensure that the book(s) are in a sanitized condition when delivered to the student (patron), and all books will be quarantined prior to being shipped out to the next patron.
Students will be able to put a hold on the books they would like to read, so please return the books to Westmount School in a timely manner so that the next student may have the book. For those students within Westmount classrooms, you may deliver your returns to your classroom. To those working online from home, there will be a curb side drop off on select days (TBD).
Your link to the Westmount Learning Commons OPAC homepage is https://library.fsd38.ab.ca/Library/Home. Choose Westmount School in the drop down box on the top left hand side of the screen. Login using your pass code provided to you and use the password Pass1630.
