The Charles and Renate Frydman Educational Resource Center (ERC) in the Wright State University Libraries has completed its nine-month move from Allyn Hall to the second floor of Dunbar Library.
The ERC’s collection contains about 19,000 items, including materials for teacher education for K–12 learning. The materials include textbooks, kits, games, toys, puppets and puzzles.
“I’m so happy with it,” said Sue Polanka, university librarian. “I think the room was waiting for it, and I think it’s the perfect spot.”
The ERC also is the home of the Dayton Holocaust Resource Center, which includes several thousand books, videos, donated artifacts and artwork.
“It’s breathtaking and amazing,” Renate Frydman said after touring the ERC on March 4. “I just wanted kids to know that they have chance to make a difference in the world.”
The Educational Resource Center is an academic support unit of the College of Education and Human Services. Its mission is to provide intellectual and physical access to current state-of-the-art materials, equipment and services.
The move combined a small 5,000-book literature collection in use in the Dunbar Library. The combined collections will allow students to have greater access to the materials.
