The Teaching Resources Collection is an area of the library which houses specialist resources for trainee teachers and those working or intending to work in educational settings.  The large number of children's books in the collection means it is also of interest to students of children's literature.  The TRC is located just inside the library entrance on the right.

A large proportion of the materials in the TRC are for use with children; they include picture books, non-fiction books, books for teenagers, 'big' books, feature films, audio books, resource packs & artefact boxes, novelty books, puppets, and Storysacks®.  Most of these resources, with the exception of Storysacks®, are available for loan, and are designed to be used in preparation for and during teaching placements. 

The remainder of the resources in the TRC are for trainee teachers.  These include photocopiable resources, reading schemes, government reports and national curriculum documents.  All teachers' resources are for reference only.

As you enter the Teaching Resources Collection you will find the teachers' resources on the left and the children's resources on the right.

If you have a question about the Collection contact Teaching Resources Librarian Janice Morris at
