Curriculum Resource Centre

A guide to the resources and services of the Curriculum Resource Centre (CRC) in the Faculty of Education. Come visit us in Seton Academic Centre 408.


Students, faculty and staff can borrow books, CDs, DVDs and kits from the CRC using their MSVU ID card validated at the Mount Library main desk. Most loan periods are 21 days, with term loans for faculty and graduate students. Off-campus borrowers can request borrowing privileges at the Mount Library main desk and borrow up to 10 items.

Fines are applied for items returned late.

Laptops, iPads, Chrome Books, bots, Makey Makey kits, digital cameras, and mp3 players and recorders can also be borrowed from the CRC (limited to Education and Child and Youth Study students). See staff for details.

Nova Scotia's  "Borrow Anywhere, Return Anywhere" policy allows borrowers to return their items to any participating public, university or community college library in the province.
