The Library's collection of children's/juvenile/YA literature and reference materials is located on the second floor. The collection is small enough to browse, but if you need to search for juvenile texts on a certain topic, here's how:


Go to the Catalog, and click Command Search. Construct your search like this:

WCL=juv AND WSU=(enter your subject term or keyword here, like animals or planets)

You can also search for Caldecott or Newbery winners by choosing "Subject begins with..." on the catalog's home page and entering "Caldecott Medal" or "Newbery Medal"

The Library's main collection also has books about the study and use of children's literature.
