We are located on the middle floor of the Martial Rose Library. The collection has a broad range of books and resources available for all students and staff but is especially aimed at students following teacher training courses. They are welcome to use the collection throughout their studies here and on School Experience.
Alongside children's fiction and information books we have multi-media, teaching packs, posters and active learning toys and artefacts. These resources are shelved together in a series of eight curriculum areas which relate to the whole range of the primary school curriculum and national guidelines. Additionally we hold journals relating to child and school-centred topics.
We actively promote our collection by producing a range of value-added materials, such as booklists and displays which are promoted by social media.
We also have a small reference children’s book archive containing facsimiles of early children's fiction and textbooks.
