Center for Cultural Resources

The Center for Cultural Resources (CCR) at Indiana University Southeast is a special collection that is part of the IU Southeast Curriculum Materials Center, available for the community, Education students, area teachers, and others involved in diversity education. The Center is open to all persons who have attended a brief orientation session for use in reserving kits.

The Center’s 60+ resource kits contain readings, curriculum guides, lesson plans, books, primary sources, artifacts, technological resources, graphic media, and picture files. The materials within each kit are organized around the following universal themes:

  1. People/Places
  2. Life Experiences
  3. Needs
  4. Natural World
  5. Aesthetics
  6. Past/Present/Future Cultures
  7. Language
  8. Rules/Institutions/Leaders
  9. Producers/Consumers/Transporters/Communicators
  10. Recreation/Celebrations
  11. Values/Service
  12. Connections/Interdependence/Globalization

The Center is located on the first floor of the Library between the art gallery and the group study rooms.

Additional Resources

The CCR also has special kits entitled CCR: Center Circulating Resources designed for instructional bulletin boards and displays: Topics include FDF Fashion Dolls and Fans, EEG Etiquette of Eating & Greeting, WWC Walls & Warriors of China, COI Coins from around the World (packets), TUS Travel in US and JWT Journals from World Travels, ORS One Room Schools, MLP Miss Liberty and Patriotism, EOG Eyes on Egypt (papyrus prints) and others.

Most items on display throughout the CCR that are not included in kits—artifacts, garments, maps, timelines, posters, books, research files and a stage—are also available and may be added to related kit reservations.  Some items cannot be delivered via WEC vans.

At times CCR receives duplicate gifts that are made available for classrooms. Check the CCR World Areas Gift Boxes to select free gifts for educational use.
