The purpose of having a curriculum collection in the library is to bring together in one location resources that focus on a K-12 audience and which may be used by our current and future teachers in the Nova Scotia primary and secondary school curriculum. 

Examples of types of resources currently found in our Curriculum Collection:

  • K-12 textbooks and accompanying Teacher's Guides
  • K-12 non-fiction
  • A small selection of old school books

Books related to the study and teaching of particular subjects, where the audience is the professional educator or pre-service teacher, will continue to be collected in the usual manner, and located on the regular shelves. The exception here are teacher's guides which accompany particular texts or teaching components found in the curriculum collection. Children's Literature will continue to be collected in the PZ and PS section of the library.
