Education in Literature Collection: Welcome

Library Collections

Education in Literature Collection

The Education in Literature Collection includes novels, plays, poetry and DVDs on the theme of education. The experiences of both students and staff in primary, secondary, higher and further education are explored.

All of the items in this collection may be borrowed by students and staff of the Institute of Education.

  • Books can be borrowed for 8 weeks.
  • DVDs can be borrowed for 1 week.
  • Some items are on a Course Reading List and are likely to be very popular. Where possible, as well as the standard 8 week loan, we have added additional 1 week loan copies of books and Overnight loan copies of DVDs.

The Education in Literature Collection is located in the Library Social Area next to the stairs on the 4th Floor of the Library.

Featured Resource

Planning a picnic this Bank Holiday weekend? Be careful it does not turn out like A Picnic at Hanging Rock. An atmospheric 1968 Australian novel by Joan Lindsay . We also have the 1975 film directed by Peter Weir on DVD which really captures the haunting disappearance of schoolgirls during a hot summer's day picnic.
