How to locate teaching materials in Search
Teaching materials are called ‘curriculum materials’ in the Library’s online Search interface. For instance, to find ‘educational toys’ you simply type the words into the search box. You then need to apply the facets on the left hand side to narrow down your search to ‘curriculum materials’ (found under the ‘Special collection’ heading).
To physically locate your item, click on ‘Get it’ as this will show which library holds the item. You can even request an item if it is only held at another campus.
Which campuses have a Teaching Materials Collection?
The Teaching Materials Collection is found at three of our libraries - Berwick, Matheson and Peninsula. Peninsula’s collection is located on level 2 of the Library. Matheson currently has their collection located on the first floor. Berwick’s collection can be found off to the right of the information desk just before the general collection begins.
