ERC (Educational Resource Center)
The Cho Educational Resource Center (ERC) is a branch of Regina Library and is located on the second floor of the Benoit Education Center building. The ERC houses a unique collection of materials that support curriculum development and lesson planning for students in the majors of education and counseling.
Unlike the Regina library, which contains many research-based and theoretical works, the ERC contains items and materials that could be found in a typical classroom, such as textbooks, instructional kits, games, and educational software. Additionally, the ERC has a diverse collection of juvenile books, including picture books, easy readers, and nonfiction books. The project room offers a space for students to create cutouts for bulletin board projects, games, or books for classroom use. Students may also submit materials for lamination if they wish. The open main room, tables, and group study room foster an environment of collaboration and discussion among students working on group or individual projects.
