Building an Environmental Education Collection for K-12 Teachers, Spencer, Roxanne M.
Education for Sustainability (EfS) is now a core value in Western Kentucky University’s Strategic Plan, and sustainability issues are being incorporated into many programs and disciplines. In this article, I discuss the building of K-12 environmental education resources within the Educational Resources Center (ERC) at WKU. The ERC is a curriculum and children's literature collection that is a campus branch of the WKU Libraries. In the course of evolving conversations about building core collection materials for K-12 educators, some Education for Sustainability (EfS) resources across academic disciplines in higher education are included.
