Zarrow Families Professional Services Center
What is the "Curriculum Library"?
The Zarrow Families Professional Services Center, also known as the Curriculum Library contains all Oklahoma state-adopted textbooks and curriculum materials for grades K-12. We are open to the general public. The materials in our collection are reference only.
Most of our visitors are Education students, school teachers, and parents. Education students use our collection to learn about the various kinds of curriculum materials and the different approaches to teaching. Teachers browse when they want fresh ideas for teaching a particular subject. Parents visit when they want to learn more about their children's education or when they want ideas for helping their children to learn.
Oklahoma adopts new textbooks every year on a six-year schedule that rotates by subject. We update the curriculum library's collection accordingly. For instance, in fall 2013, we received new Social Studies and Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth-grade Reading and Language Arts materials which will be in effect July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2019. In the fall of 2017 we received new PreK-12 Mathematics textbooks (effective dates: July 1, 2018-June 30, 2024); and so forth. For the complete subject rotation schedule, click on "subject cycle."
The University of Oklahoma Curriculum Library is typically open 9am to 5pm Monday-Friday. Please email to make an appointment to visit or with questions.
