Searching the Cofrin Library Catalog

Limit to the IMC collection and do a keyword search for "science" and teaching to retrieve call numbers to over 400 books and other items (many in the instructional materials collection on the 4th floor of the library) that may be of interest and are owned by the Cofrin Library.



All journals and magazines are located in the periodical area on the library's fourth floor. They are arranged in alphabetical order by the first letter of the first word. Note that a couple of the journals listed below are available online in full text. All of the journals can be searched using Academic Search Complete from EbscoHost/ERIC (link on the right). This is useful to pinpoint an article on your topic in a print only journal with a keyword search, instead of having to flip through all of the issues.
