CL Organization

In case you prefer the CL blog to our website, here’s a bit of information about how to find stuff:

The Curriculum Library uses Library of Congress call numbers for all methods books. These numbers are preceded by an “area code,” indicating subject:

EC …Early Childhood Education
GEM…General Education Methods
LitMethod…Literacy Methods
MA…Mathematics
PROF…Professional Collection
SCI…Science
SocSt…Social Studies
SPED…Special Education

Example
PROF LB1628.5 .T66 2005

___________________________

Age-appropriate books are arranged alphabetically by author’s last name and the first word of the title.  Stickers on the spine indicate broad subjects:

Special Education

Example

Lowry Giver

___________________________

Books with the prefix “RCB” support the St. Ambrose Reading Clinic classes and  curriculum. They are arranged by title.

___________________________

Textbooks in all subjects begin with the subject area codes listed above, then the subject or year in school, the publisher name and the date of publication.

Examples
LA 6th Glencoe 2007
MA Algebra Prentice 2000
