The Main Education Collection focuses on educational theory and all aspects of education in the UK, including resources produced by the devolved governments (Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales). The collection supports educational research within and beyond the Institute of Education.
Print resources in the Main Education Collection can be found on the open shelves on level 5 of the IOE Library. It is arranged according to subject area.
Many of our resources are available as e-books and can be accessed remotely.
Our Non-Education Collection can be found on Level 3. This is dedicated to resources on subject areas distinct from, but linked to, Education, such as Sociology, Anthropology, and Psychology. The collection reflects the wider research interests pursued at the IOE.
Some of our older or rarer material is held in our on-site and off-site stores and can be requested to view or borrow.
