  • Juvenile Collection

    The Juvenile Literature Collection is a small collection of children's books, including many award winning titles, which is located on the third floor of Lockwood Library (PDF).

    • To determine if we own a specific book, do a standard author, title, subject heading or keyword search in the Library Catalog.

    • To get a listing of what children's books are available in the University Libraries, do a subject keyword search in the Library Catalog for "Juvenile fiction".

    Check the call number designation (listed in the catalog as "Juvenile Collection") carefully because not all children's books are shelved in Lockwood Library's Juvenile Literature Collection.
