The Education Library and Curriculum Resources Centre, located on the first floor of the Education Building, provides materials and services to support the teaching and research programs of the Faculty. The Library collection includes over 122,000 monograph volumes, 500 periodical titles, microforms, government publications, and access to a vast range of full-text electronic journals.
The Curriculum Resources Centre collection includes elementary and secondary school textbooks, teachers' resource guides, videos, DVDs, CDs, games, kits, puppets, big books, and equipment for viewing and listening. A Children's Literature Collection of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, folklore, and picture books is located on the left as you enter the Library.
Tours and instructional workshops are offered at the beginning of each term to individual students and to classes. These provide an introduction to library resources and information skills that will help in preparing course assignments and writing research papers. They cover topics such as searching the Library Catalogue (MUSE), finding course materials on reserve, and locating articles and other materials via databases such as ERIC; PsychINFO; Education Full Text, and others. EndNote workshops will provide help on how to easily create footnotes and reference lists for term papers.
The Education Library provides computers for student use, tables, and carrels to connect laptops, wireless access, as well as photocopiers, printers, and scanners. You may select to work in the quiet study area of the E-Zone, prefer group study in the Curriculum Resources Centre or in one of the two group study rooms, or just relax on a lounge chair in an informal seating area.
Lending Services for laptops, digital and video cameras, digital voice recorders, and tripods are now handled by the Education Library. These services are available during regular Library operating hours, as indicated on the Library’s website at www.mcgill.ca/library/library-using/branches/education-library.
