A guide for locating sources supporting Education and related subjects.

NNU Riley Library Teacher Education Curriculum Center

The NNU Riley Library's Curriculum Collection is comprised of four parts:  

  • Curriculum (adopted by the state of Idaho Department of Education)
  • Teacher/Instructional Resources
  • Fiction, Non-fiction, Big Books, Picture books
  • Young Adult Fiction and Non-fiction

You will find these resources on the 2nd floor of the Learning Commons (west end), just behind the print journals. Some copies of children's books may also be available as eBooks.

Items labeled with Childlit or YA will be organized using the Dewey Decimal Classification system. Non-fiction items will be arranged by subject and author (e.g., 973.2 Buck). Works of fiction are arranged by author and title (e.g., Milne A Winnie). This differs from the rest of the library, which is organized using the Library of Congress (LC) Classification system.
