The OBU Curriculum Library
Come and explore our Curriculum library! We are located in the basement of Mabee Learning Center. Our collection contains over 11,000 resources specifically for OBU students in our Teacher Education program. OBU faculty, staff and students are welcome to check out the resources as well. Our guests from the community may use our die cuts, browse our collection, buy paper and lamination. We are always happy to give assistance.
