CLASS I -V LIBRARY ACTIVITIES : ISA 2017-18

Your first stop in the Library should be the Reference Section. That's the section that has encyclopaedias and dictionaries of all kinds, almanacs, atlases, and reference books you've never even heard of.
 Most reference books are non-circulating, which means you cannot check them out. They are always there in the Reference Section when you need them. So you will have to use these books in the library.
As you move up through the grades, it is important that you learn to use these valuable resources.
For this year ISA Library Activities, we are emphasizing on acquainting our Primary Students with ENCYCLOPAEDIA. The theme for the project is Encyclopaedia: Knowledge and Usage.

An encyclopaedia is a collection of articles on many topics.



GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT ENCYCLOPAEDIA

Encyclopaedia is one or more books containing information about people, places, events and things, presented accurately and objectively, in an “easy to use” manner, without any prejudice. It may deal with all areas of knowledge (called General Encyclopaedia) or it may confine itself to just one area (called Subject Encyclopaedia). It is a combined effort of a team to write an encyclopaedia .

HISTORY

The word encyclopaedia comes from the Greek words enkyklios paideia, meaning general or well-rounded education. In ancient times, scholars found that the information they needed was scattered in manuscripts in various parts of the world. Scholars made their own reference works either by copying from the works of the other authors or from other sources. These ancient reference works were the ancestors of the encyclopaedia. But these were neither organized nor accurate in information. Many scholars call the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle “the father of encyclopaedists”. In 300's B.C. he made one of the first attempts to bring all existing knowledge together in a series of books.

FEATURES

Encyclopaedia bridges the gap between what there is “to know” and the reader who “wants to know”. Content and presentation depend on the readers who are going to consult the encyclopaedia. Most encyclopaedias use one of two basic methods of subject arrangement - alphabetical arrangement and the topical arrangement. Indexing is one of the main features of Encyclopaedia which provides access to detailed information and draws together subjects that have significant relationships. For an encylopaedia constant revision is necessary to make it up to date.





Please visit your Library, explore the world of encyclopaedia and enjoy fun-filled activities.

READING MAKES LIFE A LOT EASIER!

Read the power-packed book:

 LIVING WITH HONOUR by  Shiv Khera

Reading this book, you'll realize that though you may be struggling now,.....with mental toughness, hard work and a vision , you can overcome any obstacle.

Here's a poem from the book.

                                                           IF

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or, walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you; 
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run - 
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, 
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

                                                                 - Rudyard Kipling

* Highly recommended book!
