Dear TRC Patrons and Teacher Education Program Students,
We have added a new feature to the TRC online catalog that will help you locate electronic books (aka eBooks) that correspond to many of the physical materials located in the TRC. The TRC online catalog can be found here:
TRC Online Catalog
When you search for an item in the TRC catalog, such as the popular book The Very Hungry Caterpillar, click on “details,” and then scroll to the bottom to find links to sites such as the “Internet Archive” where many eBooks are available for free electronic access. Just create a free Internet Archive account and begin checking out eBooks that you can read on your laptop or tablet– and take with you when you are out in the schools! (Note that not all TRC books have corresponding free eBooks.)
Also…Purdue Libraries also has numerous books and resources that you can find here:
— Children’s Literature: Finding E-Books (a resource from Purdue Libraries)
If you have any questions or need to consult with one of our TRC staff members, please email us at TRC@purdue.edu or call us at 765-494-45677.
