The Curriculum and Learning Resources Collection (CLRC) is located on Floor 1 of the Library and is a wide-ranging collection of classroom resources provided by the School of Education and Lifelong Learning for its PGCE students. Items in the collection can be found using UEA Library Search.
The collection is open to everyone on a reference only basis, but borrowing is limited to staff and students of the School of Education and Lifelong Learning. The standard loan period is 6 weeks and items can be requested or recalled if already on loan.
CLRC has its own classification system, with items having a classmark of LT. The collection is arranged by subject area, then by age group and then by specific topic. The material includes textbooks, videos, compact discs, books on specific topics, wall charts and items such as globes, giant dice and dominoes.
There are also Suitcases of historical and religious artefacts and storysacks for younger children. Some of these items are housed in the Archives because they contain either genuine historical artefacts or many small items considered too vulnerable for open access. These items can be found in UEA Library Search by looking for either 'suitcase' or 'storysack' as a title search.
