Education

In addition to relocating the Manuscripts Division of Special Collections to SUL’s Redwood City (RWC) Location in October, the division is moving ahead with a recently funded Educational collections project.

This two-year project will prioritize processing for collections that contain or focus on the history of education. Those identified at this point are the records of EdSource (educational policy and legislation), and the Amado Padilla papers (faculty in the Department of Education at SU), and the Ruth Asawa papers (San Francisco School of the Arts – SOTA).

Shirley Brice Heath writes, "Adults read for meaning while children look for meaning." (Handbook of Research on Children's and Young Adult Literature, p. 40)  Nowhere is this more evident than in picturebooks where the story is told entirely in pictures.  Kelly Roll has created a list of Wordless picturebooks that can be found in Cubberley Library's collection.

Covers of two of the many fantasy titles in Cubberley Library.

Now that the brunt of the academic year is over Cubberley Library invites you to read something a little lighter. The library currently has a display of young adult fantasy books perfect for reading at the beach. If fantasy isn’t your thing we also have a wide variety of other genres as well. So even if you no longer quite fit in the Y category and are a lot more A you might still find something enjoyable to read. We’ll be more than happy to point you in the direction of our curriculum collection where these items are housed.

Prezi on Power Searching With Google

The first two of six planned sessions on Advanced Power Searching With Google were held the past Tuesdays at Cubberley Education Library. In these sessions, we covered strategies on using the “Search Tools” function, including how to filter image results based on physical characteristics of expected results; using site structure to search specific domains, specific sites, part of a sites, and even a specific file type. These sessions are based on content designed for and delivered to a worldwide audience in two Massive Open Online Classes (MOOCs) offered by Google last fall and winter.
