The Instructional Resource Center, or IRC, is located on the 2nd floor of Archer Library. Our collections support the teaching programs and curriculum of the Dwight Schar College of Education.
This Library Guide presents an overview of IRC and provides information supporting the phonics scavenger hunt. Use the tabs at the top of the page to explore IRC collections, resources, and equipment available to Ashland University students.
IRC circulating collections include K-12 language arts curriculum textbooks, often referred to as basal readers, activity books, material kits (manipulatives), and leveled book kits.
The second floor is home to Archer Library's juvenile collection featuring picture books, juvenile fiction and non-fiction, big books, chapter books, graphic novels, and young adult fiction and non-fiction
The Instructional Resource Center is a work area for Ashland University students, faculty, and staff, providing access to resources such as laminating, binding, Ellison Die Cut Machines, and an extensive library of dies. Access to computers and a printing is available on the second floor.
