The collection supports primary education programs and early childhood education at all three campuses, and secondary education primarily at Melbourne and to a limited extent at Geelong.

Some core materials and reading list materials are duplicated across the three campuses. Duplication of representative selections of resources is avoided in order to develop greater depth to the collection.
