The children's poetry collection is shelved in the Teaching Resources Room. It contains a wide variety of poetry for all ages. The collection includes classics from Spike Milligan to Edward Lear, through to modern poets such as Helen Dunmore and Roger Stevens.

 Dual language books are kept in the Teaching Resources Room. They are arranged by language and then alphabetically by author.

Teaching Resource Collection

The Teaching Resources room is currently closed and will re-open in September. Books can still be accessed but you will need to request them. Please see the documents below for details of the books available and then search and request via Library Search.

The Teaching Resource Collection at the Sheppard Library, Hendon, contains a wealth of resources for you to use in your teaching practice. There are five main sections:

  • Fiction
  • Non-fiction
  • Dual-language
  • Poetry
  • DVDs (now in the main Library collection on the first floor wing)

This type of material is identified with a green classmark label prefixed with a 'JF' or a 'T'.  Those students studying for a PGCE, or a BA in Primary Education can borrow up to 50 teaching resource items.



Junior fiction books are shelved in the Teaching Resources Room. They are not arranged by Dewey sequence, but by the key stage at which they are aimed, and then alphabetically by author. For example:

  • Junk by Melvin Burgess has the shelfmark: JF KS4 BUR
