Welcome to the IRC

The Instructional Resource Center (IRC) is located on the 1st Floor of the Rev. Gregory F. Lucey, S.J. Administration Center. The IRC includes the Teacher Education Library, computer lab, classroom and media production room.

Our primary mission is to assist teacher education majors in the development of curriculum by selecting, providing access to, and instructing educators in the use of instructional resources and technologies.

On this website,  you'll find library guides and resources corresponding with your classes and assignments.

The IRC supports the Division of Teacher Education curriculum with a collection of high-quality books, media and resources appropriate for pre-school through secondary education.

Curriculum materials come in a variety of formats: children's and young adult literature, professional literature, K-12 textbooks and courses of study, and non-print materials including kits, games, manipulatives, educational software, and sound and video recordings.


NEW!!! The TumbleBookLibrary is a collection of TumbleBooks (animated, talking picture books) with fiction, non-fiction and foreign language titles, Read-Alongs (chapter books with sentence highlighting and narration but no animation), TumbleTV which consists of pre-set playlists of a sequence of books, Tumble Puzzles & Games, and TumbleResources for teachers and students. TumbleBooks are created from existing picture books which we have licensed from children's book publishers and converted to the TumbleBook format.
