The Instructional Materials Center (IMC) on the Ground Floor of King Library primarily supports Education faculty and students, especially preservice teachers. The IMC holds a wide range of collections including juvenile literature, preK-12 curriculum materials, lesson plans, games, foreign language materials, English Language Learner materials, and K-12 textbooks.
This subject guide includes resources for lesson planning, teacher licensing and state tests, and academic content standards.
The IMC floor space also houses the Libraries' video collection and microform reader. Please contact your subject librarian if you have questions about videos or using microforms.
The IMC is open whenever King Library is open (see hours here). A staff member is usually available to help in the IMC between 8am-8pm. Outside of those times, you may seek assistance from the circulation desk on the 1st floor.
