Curriculum Resource Center

The Thelma E. Slater Curriculum Resource Center, located on the third floor of the Main Library, provides a comprehensive collection of PK-12 classroom materials across the curriculum and teacher books and other aids, developed primarily for use by both undergraduate and graduate education students in support of coursework that requires research, the preparation of lessons, tutoring, and teaching in the local schools. The Slater Center provides computers, periodicals, and ample study space, along with a graphics lab section that features project equipment and supplies. Most materials, including books, display items, and realia, which comprises kits, games, charts, and other media, circulate throughout the University community and may be taken to local school sites.  An adjoining classroom is maintained by the Education Department where both daytime and evening classes are conducted throughout the year, as well as workshop and speakers.
