Search Online for SMEC Materials

The best way to search SMEC resources is to come in and see us!  In addition, you can search most SMEC materials online through the ESU William Allen White Library Online Catalog.  Among the resources not searchable in the online main library catalog are posters, periodicals, and games. Below are pictures from the center showing books and activity kits for check-out.

The Center uses a chronological classification system that consists of 3 letters and a number. The letters are stylized abbreviations of the subject category and the number represents the position of the book in that category.  For example, MDP 11 is "Math Department: Graphing Calculator 11" and MRD 558 is "K-6 Math Reading Material 558."
