Education Resources Center (ERC) Mission:
The Education Resources Center prepares teacher candidates and graduate students focusing on Education to make immediate and lifelong use of information effectively by teaching the concepts and logic of information access, by fostering information independence and critical thinking, and by providing access to Educational materials and information.
For assistance with education‐related questions, call (413) 572‐8398.
Materials in the Education Resources Center include: books, big books, games, unit plans, textbooks, lesson plans, activity books, kits and education software packages that you can borrow and use to enrich and add interest to lesson plans and classes you will teach as a student teacher.
For education research related to theory, see the Educaton Guide.

The Test Collection
This collection of standardized tests includes measures for development, intelligence, and reading, as well as culture-fair tests and other classroom measurement instruments.
NOTE: Tests do not normally circulate outside of the Library due to the cost of replacement and licensing restrictions. They are like Reserve Items except that you must sign out each test at the ERC desk in order to use it.
