The purpose of this study is two-fold: (1) To inform present and future business education teachers of the many and varied kinds of free teaching aids, which are available to them merely for the asking and (2) through the use of the listed materials students are given an opportunity to get practice in job duties in large offices and to build skills and techniques that are being called for by big business today.

It is time that we take a more realistically look at today's world and become more aware of what our actual problems are for both the teacher and the student. We must move into the realm of learning and teaching in almost the same day. We must prepare and always be aware of changes in techniques and devices, and aids to be passed on to students. We must prepare them for today's world and the world of tomorrow in order that they may make the transition smoothly from the phase of life as a student to worker or a useful adult citizen.

Many commercial organizations, trade associations, museums, foundations, governmental departments, travel bureaus, and others, make available to teachers, pictures and data of value. Much of this material is published for publicity purposes, frequently with the specific intention that it shall be available to teachers and educators.

Because the sources of such materials are so numerous and varied it is impractical for the individual teacher to catalogue them for herself. For this reason the writer has set out to do this for business teachers and students who are interested in becoming business teachers. These materials are gathered together from library listings, periodicals, published bibliographies, and other similar sources.
