Library collection

Library Collection

The library within the Curriculum Lab is geared specifically to meet the needs of preservice teachers.  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.

  • Praxis study guides to prepare for certification testing.

  • Manipulatives, games, and activities.

  • Assessments and diagnostic inventories.

Borrowing Privileges

Marywood students, staff, and faculty may check out items from the Curriculum Library just as they would at the main Marywood 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 Library circulation desk.

Loan Periods

The loan periods for the Curriculum Library are the same as the Marywood 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.

Locating Materials

All Curriculum Library books and materials can be found in the Marywood library online catalog, ilink. You may access the catalog from the link under the menu on this site or from the Marywood library home page.

In addition, the librarian and staff are always available to assist you.
