The resource centre includes the shop as well as a reading room. Many books, documents, films, curricular materials and out-of-print manuals that are not available for sale are housed in the reference library. Subjects of special interest are early learning, educational media and elementary education. Books and materials from the library can be photocopied on request. A computerised search facility is also available.

The archive of learning materials has been built over the years, and includes folk toys and games that cannot be easily sourced or are no longer crafted.
This documentation serves as a reference for design related activities.
