Mission of the CMC

The Curriculum Materials Collection (CMC) of the William H. Hannon Library supports the students and faculty of the LMU School of Education, specifically methods and practicum courses, as well as children’s and young adult literature courses taught at LMU. The CMC also serves as a supplementary resource of non-circulating materials to local schools, particularly Catholic schools in the Los Angeles area.

Objectives and Scope of the CMC

The CMC supports teaching in the School of Education; priority is given to materials that most directly support course work preparing students to meet requirements of education degrees and credentialing programs. Other materials in the field of education are housed in other areas of the library; CMC materials are those most essential for practitioner-orientated teacher education. The collection also supports early literacy development and curriculum for educators, students and families at the Loyola Marymount University Children's Center. 


The CMC consists of two main components:

  • Children’s Fiction Literature 
  • Children's Non Fiction Literature
