Introduction to Murphy Library: UWL START: Curriculum Center

Use this guide as a general guide to the resources, services, and spaces available to you at Murphy Library. This is the perfect introduction for first-year students, transfer students, or that junior or senior that hasn't been to the library in a while.


The Alice Hagar Curriculum Center is located on the 2nd floor of Murphy Library and is open during regular library hours. The Curriculum Center has materials for teachers in training and educational resources. These materials are the only ones in the library arranged according to the Dewey Decimal System, compared to the Library of Congress classification system that all other books in Murphy Library fall under. That is because the Curriculum Center is a mock school library for School of Education students.



Types of materials you'll find in the Curriculum Center:

  • Children's literature
  • K-12 textbooks  
  • Teaching kits
  • Videos
  • Coming soon: Graphic Novel Collection
