Hello everyone, my name is Valerie Dewhurst and I am the Librarian/Head of Library at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School in Lancashire. I’ve been in post here for 16 years and very much enjoy a challenge. Having discovered FOSIL I’m now eager to get it used, but of course it’s small steps …however, I’ve already planted the seed (slideshow presentation on INSET day) and an end of term email sent out yesterday …so with a bit of luck, next term we will see things starting to grow. FOSIL to me is many things but it’s also a way in which I can try to get my non-fiction stock back to being used again – it’s also a way in which to entice departments back to booking the library (other than the English team – who by the way are fabulous) I know this can’t be done solo – so I’m hoping to get as many HOFs and SLs onboard…then of course share their experience with others in school. I’ve also added FOSIL down as one of my appraisal targets for the next academic year – there’s no stopping me now!
