About the IRC

Welcome to the IRC!

The Instructional Resource Center is located on the 2nd floor of Archer Library at Ashland University. Our collections support the teaching programs and curriculum of the Dwight Schar College of Education. This LibGuide - or Library Guide - provides information about IRC resources and collections available to AU students.


About the Instructional Resource Center

The IRC circulating collection includes K-12 curriculum textbooks and additional resources such as activity books, manipulative kits, audio books (CD), posters, maps, 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 resources such as laminating, binding, and several Ellison Die Cut Machines and a library of dies. Available technology resources inside the IRC and on the second floor include computers, scanners, regular and color printing.
