CSU SACRAMENTO LIBRARY
The K-12 Curriculum Collections are located on 2 SOUTH. Included are textbooks, curriculum guides, and nonprint media for use by students in the CSUS credential programs. Material in the Curriculum Collections is listed in the EUREKA Computer Catalog by author, title, keyword, subject heading, and call number. It is particularly helpful to use EUREKA's "limit" feature when searching for curriculum materials. This allows you to limit your search results to items located in the Curriculum Collections. These collections are briefly described below.
