UW Libraries Search

Curriculum Materials at the Campus Library

Where can they be found?

Most curriculum materials, e.g. lesson plans, instructional design books, activity and assignment guides, etc., are located on the third floor of the library, north side (to the left at the top of the stairs). Some will also be found in the third floor stacks, in the Campus Library's general collection of materials. 

How to search for them in the library's collection:

When searching for curriculum materials in UW Libraries Search (the purple search box above), a good way to get started is to use the phrase study and teaching or individual term curriculum and then additional terms that represent the subject/topic area of interest.

Sample searches:

  • study and teaching and language arts
  • curriculum and language arts

The location will likely be displayed as UW Bothell/CCC Library Curriculum but may also be UW Bothell/CCC Library 3rd Floor Stacks or elsewhere:
