Education Collections

Books and More
Most of the education materials are located in the "L" call number range, however, you may find related sources in other call number areas -- for example, psychology. The "L" call numbered books are shelved in the Fenwick Library on the fourth floor of the C wing. For help reading a call number, review the How Items are Organized @Mason guide.

Curriculum and Juvenile Collections The library's juvenile and curriculum collections are located on the 1st floor of the Fenwick Library in the old B wing. Review the Juvenile collection guide to see new books in that collection. Mason is a public review site for Virginia Department of Education's textbooks and instructional materials adopted for use in Virginia K-12 schools.

Education Journals are shelved alphabetically by title on the compact shelving located on the 1st floor of Fenwick Library in the new wing.

Tests and Measurements The University Libraries do not have a test collection, however, we do own Tests in Microfiche from ETS.  Out of print tests and tests in the public domain can be obtained from a variety of sources. The Tests & Measurements subject guide explains what is available to you.

ERIC Documents Many ERIC documents have been digitized and are available through the ERIC database.  The library has ERIC Documents on microfiche for access to those publications that have not been digitized.  The ERIC fiche collection is stored in the old C wing in the Fenwick Library If you are a distance/off campus student you can request a ERIC document, click on this link: Interlibrary Loan, then select InterCampus Loan. The micfofiche will be pulled, you will be notified when it is available for use.  You can get the ED number from the ERIC database as well as a limited number of ERIC documents.
