School's In Session: Educat+

The Gottesman Libraries


We draw attention to Educat+, the definitive record of library holdings at Teachers College, Columbia University, powered by Primo VE, a patron-facing discovery layer that lets you search seamlessly for everything in our collection and more: books, journals, articles, curriculum, children’ literature, and institutional materials. Our resources reflect the depth and breadth of academic programs as they support teaching, learning, and research in education, health, and the applied health sciences. They include many specialized collections that date from the sixteenth through the nineteenth centuries, as well as additional resources that we can acquire, whether through purchase or interlibrary loan.
