The Teaching Materials Center is often referred to as the TMC.
When searching the online catalog, you can limit your search results to just TMC items.
Example Search: I need children's books about "self-esteem"
The video tutorial below provides instructions on how to find TMC books in the library catalog.
Do you need to find books for a specific grade level or lexile range? Use Novelist! It is a database of literature that provides teaching ideas, reader's advisory, multiple ways to limit a search, and more. Watch this video to learn more about this great resource.
