Library Collection and Services
The library within the Curriculum Lab is geared specifically to meet the needs of pre-service teachers with resource guides for most subjects. The collection includes:
Books with lesson plan ideas in all major content areas.
An extensive collection of K-12 textbooks used in local school districts. Many textbook series include teacher's editions and supplemental resources.
Literacy and math learning materials
Assessments and diagnostic inventories.
In addition to books and other educational materials, the Curriculum Lab & Library includes:
- An Ellison Machine with many dies - used for cutting letters, numbers, and shapes for bulletin boards.
- A laminator for preserving and reusing teaching aids.
- A Cricut (electronic cutting) machine
- An iPad cart with about 40 iPads that can be signed out for your field classroom use
Marywood students, staff, and faculty may check out items from the Curriculum Library just as they would at the main Marywood Learning Commons library. A valid student, staff or faculty ID is required.
With some restrictions, Marywood alumni may also check out materials, with a valid library card obtained from the Marywood Learning Commons Library front desk.
The loan periods for the Curriculum Library are the same as the Learning Commons library, which are: undergraduates, three weeks; graduate students, eight weeks; faculty, semester. For all patrons, the loan period for media (DVD/videos) is one week and the loan period for juvenile materials is three weeks.
All Curriculum Library books and materials can be found in the Marywood library online catalog, ilink. You may access the catalog from the Marywood library home page.
In addition, the librarian and staff are always available to assist you.
Contact the library any time when you need assistance. Students can also make an appointment with a librarian for one-on-one research consultation.
Contact the School of Education for information about the operating hours.
