The Curriculum and Instruction Materials Center (CIMC) is a specialized collection of resources for preschool through high school educators. Its primary mission is to assist education majors in the development of instructional activities by providing access to state-of-the-art instructional resources and technologies. The CIMC is located on the second floor of the J. Murrey Atkins Library. The CIMC is accessible anytime the library is open.

What We Do

We work with faculty to develop instruction sessions that may last anywhere from 1 to 3 hours are designed to assist students in successfully completing course assignments. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • orientation to the CIMC including how to locate instructional resources in Atkins library and in cyberspace.
  • ERIC database searching.
  • evaluating and locating education resources on the Web.
  • integration of children's and young adult literature into the curriculum.
  • integration of instructional technologies into the curriculum.

The Education Liaisons also assist students and faculty in locating resources in all formats for both instructional and research purposes. They are also available to help students and/or faculty design instructional experiences using multimedia formats and web 2.0 technologies.
