Curriculum Lab

The Curriculum Lab (also known as the Education Library) consists of several different collections. Juvenile books, including Newbery and Caldecott winners, textbooks, manipulatives, journals, and various reference sources are all available in this area of the library.

The Curriculum Lab has some odd ways of shelving materials, so if you can't find something, please ask a staff person! You can also use these handy guides for help.



The Curriculum Lab also offers reference assistance, instructional services, and additional support for the student and faculty population working in the Department of Education Coursework.


Juvenile Collection

Comprehensive collection includes all Newbery and Caldecott award books. These are available for circulation.

Textbooks and Manipulatives

In this area you'll find manipulatives from flashcards and games to posters and puppets as well as textbooks on all subjects for grades K-12.


All Education journals are located in the Curriculum Lab, including current issues, bound periodicals and microfilm and microfiche versions.

Other Resources

Other print resources available include Educational reference books and the Belmont Teaching Center collection, as well as Juvenile reference books. Montessori manipulatives are also found in this area (but cannot be checked out).

Additional Services

There are free book jackets and periodicals available to all students.

Students can also leave items to be laminated. The charge is 30 cents a linear foot for laminating and the turn-around is usually between 24 and 36 hours.  Drop items to be laminated off with Courtney Fuson or in the Media Center.

The Education Department has recently purchased an Ellison Die Cut Machine, which is available for use at the library. Simply check in at the desk in the Media Center to use the machine. Be sure to bring your own paper and your Belmont ID.  A list of all of the dies available can be found here.  Click on the dies to see lesson ideas and more information about how to use them.
