Biographical Information

Cathy Costello is the Teacher Librarian at Seven Hills High School and has over 20 years’ experience working in school libraries. Cathy is passionate about school libraries leading future-focused learning in response to our ever-changing information and educational landscape.


Cathy will introduce attendees to her webpage. This teaching and learning resource was developed to complement and supplement her school library’s physical resources. It comprises a range of teaching and learning resources to support the curriculum and to develop information management and study skills. As the webpage is Creative Commons licenced, Cathy will also discuss Creative Commons’ baseline permissions and core conditions.

Attendees will be able to locate the teaching and learning tools found on the website and utilise them in their own school context. They will also have a better understanding of the different layers of Creative Commons licences and how they might apply these to their own original content.
