During the Summer 2017, Session 1 (May 15 - July 4), the CMC is closed. Items can be requested to be paged for pick up at the Bender Library, 3rd floor Borrowing Desk. It may take up to 24 hours to page an item. Paging only occurs Monday - Friday. To have an item paged, either email Alex Hodges (email@example.com) your request, or visit/contact the Bender Library, 3rd floor Borrowing Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org).
During Summer 2017, Session 2 (July 5 - August 11), the CMC will be open, when staffed, Monday - Friday, 11am - 3pm. The CMC is inaccessible during the weekends because the Spring Valley Building is closed on Saturdays and Sundays, except for special events.
In the event that you need access to the CMC when it is closed, please contact Alex Hodges at email@example.com to make an appointment or to seek assistance. During the Summer 2017, Session 1 (May 15 - July 4), all CMC materials should be returned to Bender Library's Borrowing Desk, or sent to Bender Library Access Services/Borrowing via campus mail (note Bender Library is Bldg. # 8046).
Since July 2016, the CMC has been housed in AU's Spring Valley Building, on the Fourth Floor, in Rm. 418, where it is co-located with AU's School of Education. From 1992 through mid-2016, the CMC was previously housed on AU's main campus in Bender Library. The CMC collections may be used on site by community users. Only AU-affiliated users may borrow collection items. AU's teacher education candidates have priority for borrowing, as the collection is primary for their curriculum and in-service teaching needs.
The CMC Collections: The Larissa Gerstel Critical Literacy Collection (multicultural children's and young adult literature), the Teaching Collection (textbooks, reproducibles, manipulatives, and teaching guides), and the Education Reference Collection (encyclopedias, dictionaries, bibliographies) are located within the CMC. The collections are managed by the University Library and are curated by the Education & Curriculum Materials Librarian for the School of Education's curriculum.
