Teaching Materials Center

This guide is starting point for anyone seeking to learn about the resources available in the Teaching Materials Center. This includes: what general resources are available, how to find specific resources, and how to access materials.


The TMC nonbook section consists of materials that are not books or audiovisual materials, including: models, manipulatives, games, puppets, activity sets, and more.

They are meant to act as aids to enhance teaching and instruction. These are in the catalog just like a book. The call numbers begin with ‘TMC Nonbook’ and are organized on the shelf by teaching subject area using Dewey.

To browse available TMC Nonbook items online, visit the Milner Library catalog's list of items classified as Nonbook items. Add search terms such as "puppet" or "math" in the second line to see results specific to your needs.
