Abstract: The Curriculum Collection at MTSU’s James E. Walker Library is a specialized collection that serves pre-K through 12th grade undergraduate education majors, graduate students enrolled in M.Ed., Ed.S., and Ph.D. programs in education, local K-12 educators, and the community at large. The collection contains approximately 53,000 titles made up of K-12 textbooks, young adult fiction, children’s literature, juvenile nonfiction, games, and teaching materials. These materials are used by pre-service educators to develop curricula and lesson plans and may also be used by teachers in K-12 instructional settings.
