Textbook and Curriculum Collection

The primary purpose of the Textbook and Curriculum Collection is to support students studying in teacher education programs.  There are also secondary goals of archiving state-adopted instructional materials, and supporting scholars in education, cultural studies and history who use items from the collection as primary sources in their work.  To this end, historical materials are rarely weeded, though many are housed in the Library Storage Facility.

English and Spanish are the primary languages of the Textbook and Curriculum Collection, and titles are mainly purchased in print.
