The Curriculum Library Overview

The Collection
The Curriculum Library provides resources and services to FSU faculty and students, with a particular focus on the Education Department. The Ella C. Ritchie Curriculum Library, founded in 1970, was a progressive innovation for the time. The collection includes instructional materials for curriculum planning, lesson preparation, unit development, and assessment of students in the early childhood, elementary, and secondary levels. Materials include juvenile and young adult literature books, textbooks, activity and idea books, curriculum guides, instructional manipulatives, content area games, audiovisual materials, educational software and reference materials for grades K-12.
