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

"Now, what I want is Facts. Teach these boys and girls nothing but Facts. Facts alone are wanted in life." A quotation from 'Hard Times' by Charles Dickens.
