Curriculum Collections

The Curriculum Department offers something for everyone, whether it’s a future teacher needing materials to help create a lesson plan, a researcher looking for juvenile literature for critical analysis, a future counselor or speech-language pathologist interested in materials that may help others, a parent or homeschooler looking for a book to read to their child or a textbook that may help their child understand a difficult topic, or just anyone looking for a good book to curl up with, movie to watch, or music to listen to. The department houses multiple collections, including the Nebraska Archive of Children’s Literature, DVDs, CDs, the PreK-12 Textbook Collection, lesson plan materials, games, kits, manipulatives, children’s magazines, and more!
