Education Resource Library at South Campus

Education Resource Library

The Education Resource Library was established in 2018 upon Butler University's expansion to the South Campus building at 1000 W. 42nd St. The library supports the faculty, staff, and students of the College of Education by providing access to children's, young adult, curricular, and professional resources nearby to COE offices and classrooms. These resources were formerly shelved in the Education Commons and Curriculum Resource Center areas of Irwin Library's lower level, though some education-related resources do remain at Irwin, specifically those supporting the Human Movement & Health Science Education program.

Items available in the Education Resource Library can be searched via the Library's WorldCat Discovery online catalog (use the Library filter on the left side of the results page to restrict to Education Library items) and are shelved using Library of Congress classification in the following individual collection areas:

  • Picture Books
  • Biographies
  • Chapter Books
  • Young Adult Books
  • Professional Books
  • Textbooks
  • Kits
  • Reference
  • Periodicals
  • Audio/Visual

The Education Resource Library is a self-service branch accessible to all Butler users via front doors during weekday business hours, and to COE faculty, staff, and students only via a Butler ID card-access door when the front doors are locked. A self-checkout machine (pictured below) is available for easy checkouts of Education Resource Library items, and a return bin will be located inside the library as well.
