Cronulla High School Collection

Our library holds an enviable collection that ranges from the most recent fiction novels, both classic and modern, to a comprehensive variety of graphic novels to an informative, and sometimes quirky, non-fiction section. Our texts also cater for advanced readers all the way through to those who need a bit more guidance. Along with our physical space, our virtual library is also versatile and flexible – always with up-to-date resources and subscriptions to assist in student learning.

School Catalogue

Cronulla High School is an Oliver school, an interactive catalogue searching tool. This is available through the DET student portal (hyperlink student portal) in the top left corner. Oliver also retains an account for each student detailing current loans, reservations and overdue notices so parents and students are able to see at a glance what resources are on loan or overdue.

Cronulla High School Library subscribes to databases that are available through Library Moodle. These databases require a username and password and are available for use by Cronulla High School students only. Click the image to see a list of databases available.

Library Moodle

The Library has its own Moodle page that assists with connecting students to their research needs. As well as Library lesson plans, Moodle also has links to student support services, our subscription research databases, guides to referencing and citation and our catalogue and much more.
