Curriculum Materials is a special collection of teaching resources located on the second floor of the northeast quadrant. The collection includes a variety of preschool, elementary, and secondary school level materials for students, teachers, and others working with children.
All books in the collection, including textbooks and thousands of award-winning books for children and adolescents, can be identified through a search in E. H. Butler Library's ALLSearch , the library’s discovery service.
Children's Literature Comprehensive Database (CLCD) is an index of millions of children's book titles that allows you to search by reading level measurements, book reviews, age & grade level, and much more. CLCD is a terrific place to start when searching for curricular material.
Project Flight founded in 2004 an on-going special book collection that fosters peace for the E.H. Butler Library. The library receives approximately 500 volumes a year, including scholarly, adult, reference, and children’s books that include groups such as African-American, Asian, Latino, African, Arab, Caribbean, Native American; various religious denominations such as Catholic, Buddhist, Muslim, etc., and books on special constituencies, such as women, for the creation of the Cecilia Bard Multicultural Library for Peace. The collection was named after Dr. Bard’s mother who died an untimely death. According to Dr. Bard, these books, “…will improve students’ lives, and provide a way for them to appreciate the beautiful mosaic that makes up world cultures; these books also offer pathways for students to discover a common ground for unity and peace as well as respect for their differences. “ The creation of this collection also aids the college, the largest teacher-education institution in the state, in addressing 3 issues of importance: the New York State Standards for Education, and for the National Certification, Accreditation for Teacher Education Programs (N-CATE) and Middle States accreditation process for the college.
