This guide describes the Education Resource Center's (ERC) children's literature collection for education majors.

The mission of the Education Resource Center (ERC) is to provide preschool through grade 12 (P-12) curriculum resources and related services for the preparation and professional development of educators in support of national and Delaware content and performance standards.  The ERC will serve:

  • University of Delaware education candidates and faculty,
  • Candidates in the School Library Media Program,
  • Preschool-12 professional educators in Delaware,
  • University of Delaware Preschool-12 schools located on campus, and,
  • State and community agencies and Delaware school districts through partnerships.

With a priority given to education faculty and students, the ERC makes available any materials appropriate for use in classrooms or for preparation for entering the classroom.  With a total of approximately 30,000 items, the ERC has curriculum materials, both print and electronic, plus a wide selection of the Book Review Room which has new titles of both fiction and non-fiction K-12 books.
