Have you been in the resource center? You have probably walked past us on your way to or from class. Why not stop in to see what it’s all about.
The Curriculum Resource center includes Room 226 in the TETC building which is between 226A and 226T on the second floor. In total, there are 5 parts to it.
When you walk in the first thing you pass is the Powell Reading Room. This is our quiet study area, also known as the lamp room. It’s a great place to get some serious studying done, or to have a quiet moment to yourself.
If you continue further past the desk, you will find a large 14,000 item collection of resources. This area is full of children’s literature books and puppets along with a variety of other materials. The CRC also houses the Social Work departmental collection near the desk and licensing and exam preparation materials. Items in the collections can be searched using an online catalog and can be checked out at the service desk. Our friendly staff are happy to help in any way we can.
There are plenty of tables, study carrels and study rooms where students or small groups may work.
There are also two rooms which have special collections in them. The Maryland Collection Room has books by Maryland authors or illustrators. Some of the books are about Maryland and the eastern shore. The other room houses the environmental collection which includes the Green Earth Book Award winners as well as other books that deal with the environment and environmental issues.
Hidden away is a seminar room which is for larger groups. Please let us know if you wish to use it. We hope that you will come by the Curriculum Resource Center now and use it both to study in, for class assignments, or just to borrow a good book.
