Lund, Sweden, 27 April 2021 – Axiell, the world’s leading software and services provider for the cultural sector, announces that Göteborgs Högre Samskola Indepepndent School has chosen Axiell’s cloud-based school library system WeLib. Their goal is to enable all 1,600 students to leverage the school library’s resources through a user-friendly and easy-to-navigate system where the entire collection of books is available.
Göteborgs Högre Samskola is an independent school that serves students from preschool through high school. The school library wanted a more user-friendly library system and chose WeLib as it exceeded their expectations and needs for a new system.
“We are currently working on digitising our book collection and WeLib is a great fit. The students will enjoy and benefit from the possibilities offered by the system. My expectation is that students will actively use WeLib as a tool in their daily schoolwork; that they will give book tips, review books, create and share collections and publish their work. I would like the students to be co-creators and in this way the library activities become a natural part of schoolwork. The ambition is for the system to be used, not just by me as a librarian”, says Sofia Åberg, librarian at Göteborgs Högre Samskola.
WeLib is a modern, complete school library system with educational functionality. It is an accessible system that allows educators, librarians and students to interact digitally from anywhere. WeLib is a repository for all educational material at the school and handles both digital and physical resources. Students can take the school library with them wherever they go.
“The past year has seen the digitisation of schools take off in earnest, and we are delighted that more and more schools see WeLib as a natural part of integrating the digital school library into their teaching. The fact that Gothenburg’s Högre Samskola has now also chosen to collaborate with us is definitely proof that we are on the right track”, says Joachim Läckberg, Axiell’s Public Library Manager in Sweden.
