Meeting Student Needs: Bookstore Display in a University Curriculum Materials Center.
Barbakoff, Sondra
This paper describes the present shelf arrangement of instructional materials in the Curriculum Materials Center (CMC) located in Swirbul Library on the Garden City, Long Island campus of Adelphi University. The CMC is a special library resource supporting the curriculum of the School of Education at Adelphi, and graduate and undergraduate students preparing for careers as teachers are its most frequent users. It is an area that houses items quite different from the usual library collection, and the display and organization of these items offer special challenges to a librarian. Some of these challenges are related to the tension between the purposes of curriculum centers and the organizational schemes of libraries, of which they are a part. Background information is provided about curriculum centers and library organization to allow for better understanding of the reasons for changing the shelving of the nonprint materials in the CMC from the traditional library arrangement to a bookstore type of display.
