Materials include the Resources and Services Guides (1982-2002), program overviews, surveys, handbooks, assessment packets, the Ad Hoc Committee on Teacher Assessment reports, various other committee reports, sourcebooks, casebooks, bibliographies, UNO Learning Center presentation handouts, brochures, pamphlets, proposal presentation guide, First Year Success course instructor manual, meeting agendas, minutes, newsletters, workshop information, and miscellaneous information. Also included in the collection is one box of Teaching Learning Technology Roundtable (TLTR) materials, including the binder from the 1999 Summer TLTR Institute, TLTR proposals, planning documents, team information, instructional technology information, and miscellaneous. The materials have not been arranged and described.

Circa 2004, Marilyn Leach, Director of the Center for Faculty Development, transferred her CFD files to University Archives upon her retirement. Included with her files was one box of materials from the Teaching Learning Technology Roundtable which Robert Runyon, Library Dean, hand sent to Marilyn Leach in 2000, at the request of David Corbin, a professor in the School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation. The TLTR files were returned to the library with Marilyn Leach's other files, apparently in the same state in which she had received them. A group of 63 bound CFD reports predates Marilyn Leach's transfer, but accession records are not available for these.
