K-12 Teacher Resource Books Video Summary

Finding K-12 Teacher Resource Books

  1. To find K-12 professional books at Milner, begin at the advanced search page
  2. In the first line, change the drop-down from 'Any field' to 'subject.'
  3. For the subject, you might consider both the discipline and the grade range. A good strategy is to include both of these in the subject you search. The general structure of the subject should be: subject/discipline study and teaching (grade range).

For example, this might look like: 

  • language arts study and teaching (primary)
  • science study and teaching (elementary)
  • math study and teaching (middle)
  • social studies study and teaching (elementary)
  • physics study and teaching (secondary)

       4. Enter your subject in the same line where it prompts, 'Enter a search term.' 

Example Subject Search

       5. You then have a couple of options, depending on what you are looking for: 

  • For a search that returns ALL materials in the library assigned the subject, click search and browse through results. 
  • To create a search that returns all relevant TMC resources, click search. Then use the 'Tweak Your Results' to the right of your search results and make your Location: Floor 6 Shelves Teaching Materials Center
  • For a search that returns only TMC Textbooks assigned the subject you enter, add a line to the advanced search that restricts the Holding Call Number to TMCText (no space). Then, click search. 

Example Holding Call Number Search - TMCText

  • For a search that returns only TMC PRO books assigned the subject you enter, add a line to the advanced search that restricts the Holding Call Number to TMC PRO. Then, click search.
