Learning Resource Center at JRP
The Learning Resource Center (LRC) at the KU School of Education offers students numerous benefits and unique learning features including; books, computer labs, a printer/copier, poster printing and/or laminating services, DVDs and videos. Located in JRP Hall, Room 108 - the LRC is a one-stop shop for any student enrolled at the KU School of Education.
The General Collection in the LRC includes a variety of education-related books in areas such as: curriculum, teaching, controlling the classroom, special education, multicultural education, English as a second language, language arts, math, science and more. Educational kits, such as manipulatives for math, and a fiction section are also included.
Lesson Planning Textbooks
The LRC maintains a collection of textbooks from Grades PK-12. The textbooks are especially useful for designing lesson plans. The collection contains teacher and student editions as well as supplemental material. Subjects covered range from Social Studies and Science to Music and Foreign Language. The textbook collection is organized and shelved separately from our other collections. In addition it has a unique cataloging system, but can be searched in the same databases as our other materials. The textbooks are organized according to subject, publisher, year, grade level, and format. The LRC uses the Library of Congress call number system for its collections, with the exception of textbooks and journals.
Journals & Publications
Many publications are available online through KU Library Services. If we do not have a particular journal, check to see if the University Libraries keep it in Watson Library, or you can check to see if it can be found on-line through our on-line resources.
