Education Library

Public library spaces are closed, but we are still here to assist you.
View a quick reference guide of online services and resources on our COVID-19 Updates page.

The Education Library, located in Dickey Hall, serves the College of Education. Our collection contains several academic books as well as a juvenile collection. We have numerous workspaces so you can spread your projects out. Public computers and printing are available. We also have a hands-on learning area with free resources and materials for projects and assignments for students, staff, and faculty.

We strive to be the library that the College of Education needs, and in doing so we offer specialized sessions to faculty and staff. From the left sidebar, you can request an instruction session with the librarians or request an orientation or tour of the library. You may also suggest books or other items to be purchased.
