InterfaceLIFT – Free Desktop Images

If you are looking for some beautiful desktop images and screen-savers, take a look at the huge collection of photographs freely available from InterfaceLIFT.  These are uploaded by photographers around the world, and you can see other images they have taken, create an account for your favourites, receive updates via RSS feeds and leave a comment on their work.

Most of the images on the site are of landscapes, some quite stunning, but many are also of interesting cityscapes and fascinating architecture, and a few are good shots of animals. Some of the earlier images were created by digital artists, but most of the recent ones are by photographers. If you are interested in photography, the photographers usually give a brief description of the type of camera and lens used to create the effect.

Before you download, choose the resolution you need for your screen. Also, make sure you save the images with the file names listed – if you rename them it can be hard to find the same image again if you need it.

Searching is either done by date, or by tags: colour, scene, location, medium, event, equipment or subject. There is also an app available for the iPad and the iPhone.

New Library Blog

Welcome to our new Library blog, aptly named The Pulse, where we will share news about events that are happening in both the Senior and the Middle School Libraries and in The Lilley Centre.

In the Library, we have two main aims:

Information literacy:  We are committed to preparing students for a complex future in a global world. By providing a dynamic learning environment, combining innovative teaching practices and technologically-enriched learning spaces, we hope that students will become intuitive, motivated and reflective learners. The cultivation of information literacy skills and critical thinking processes will enable students to negotiate the challenges and embrace the opportunities of an increasingly complex and interconnected world.

Reading enjoyment:  In the high technology world in which we live, the ability to read for meaning is critical, and the desire to read for pleasure is something which we must continue to foster. In this blog, we will let you know about the exciting ways in which we are promoting and encouraging reading.

If you have not been able to visit The Lilley Centre, below are some images of it:
