College of Education Media Library

About the Media Library

The media library, a unique cooperative effort of the College of Education and the Washoe County School District (WCSD), contains a wide variety of material designed for curriculum enrichment, lesson enhancement, and professional development.

Patrons of the Learning & Resource Center consist of University of Nevada Reno students, faculty, and staff; Washoe County School District teachers, librarians and counselors; and private school teachers in our area. They may draw from the more than 44,000 materials housed in the Learning Resource Center in a variety of different media formats including books, print materials, audio, DVD's, instructional kits, study prints, artifacts, and manipulatives. Digital camcorders and external microphones are also available for checkout.

The center is equipped for viewing and reviewing all materials located in the media library. The library also has an extensive collection of juvenile books to enhance lessons and presentations. Among the holdings of the Learning Resource Center are resource materials in the professional section, the Nevada section, books from the Dean's Grant for Special Education, the Equity Education grant, and a growing collection of English as a Second Language (ESL) resources. The professional collection also includes a variety of university and school district staff development materials as well as the Washoe County School District adopted textbooks for K-12 grades.
