The instructional materials in the TCC collection include student textbooks with accompanying teacher resource materials such as teachers' editions and workbooks, curriculum guides and lesson plans, sound recordings, games, kits, picture sets, computer software, and videocassettes. Supplemental sources such as "idea" books for lesson planning and classroom strategies with diverse student populations are also an integral part of the collection. All TCC materials are indexed in the Oviatt Library Catalog and circulate under regular Oviatt Library policies and procedures.
In addition, the TCC has an A/V equipment area for the preview of TCC materials and/or the creation of instructional materials. This area includes personal computers, CD players, videocassette players, and letter and paper cutters. This equipment is available free of charge for in-house use whenever the TCC is open.
The Oviatt Library's collection of young adult/children's fiction and non-fiction is also housed in the TCC. This collection includes national award winning titles as well as a representative collection of various genres for juvenile literature. These materials are also indexed on the Oviatt Library Catalog and circulate like other Library materials.
The materials and equipment in the TCC are available for use in-house to the general public and can circulate to currently enrolled CSU students. A valid CSU library card is required for circulation of materials. Individual non-CSU library users may secure borrowing privileges by purchasing an "TCC Community User Card" for an annual fee of $25 payable in the TCC.
