Monographs

Monographs currently available from ACRL:

Directory of Historical Textbook and Curriculum Collections
Librarians routinely receive questions about locations of older school-books, specialized school materials, and names of institutions that will accept donations of materials used in kindergarten through high school classrooms. This directory encompasses historical collections of school-book and curriculum materials in the United States and Canada; that is, textbooks and curriculum materials published prior to 1980. Several indexes are included that identify collections by geographic location, size, strengths in various subject areas, willingness to accept donations, and format. A resource list provides some guidance to other directories and a brief glossary explains unfamiliar formats and preservation terminology.
