The Professional Development Collection is intended to help with the professional development of P-12 educators, focusing on the practical application of knowledge, strategies, and activities of these professions. These items are different from the education research collection at Lied Library which is intended for scholarly research (please verify the location of items before visiting the TDRL or Lied Library). Professional development materials are included in the TDRL collection in order to provide students and P-12 educators with resources which will assist in enhancing their abilities as educators. Topics mainly focus on areas relevant to classroom educators; however, items dealing with education administrators and other staff such as counselors are also included. Textbooks for College of Education courses are not added to the collection unless specifically requested by faculty members.
