About the Center
The Curriculum Materials Center is a facility that is affiliated with the Teacher Education Department, and as such serves teacher education majors and minors primarily. The collection contains textbooks and curriculum related materials for grades K-12 as well as several computers of various platforms for use by students in evaluating K-12 software.
The children's literature collection and the education-related journals are housed in the main library, although there are some small representative collections in the CMC. The collection is automated as a part of the Corriher-Linn-Black Library system, Voyager, and the CMC has a dedicated on-line public access catalog (OPAC) which accesses the catalog and circulation modules. The ERIC database available through NC-LIVE is of special interest to teacher education students.
