Finding Children's Books using the Library Online Catalog
The Charles W. Chesnutt Library Catalog is used to find titles available at the library:
- Use the title and author search when you wish to locate a specific title.
- The bibliographic record of the book will contain the information you need to locate it on the shelves
- The keyword search screen will allow you to create more complexe searches combining fields such as keyword and subject to find results relevant to your topic. Some useful subjects for finding children's literature and young adult literature are: children's literature; juvenile fiction; children's stories; juvenile poetry; adolescent literature; and, folklore.
- The children's/juvenile section is located on the 3rd floor of the library.
Keyword Searching Tips:
- and - both terms must be present (Ex: Shakespeare and gender)
- or - either term may be present (Ex: men or masculinity)
- * - truncation (Ex: feminis* - will find feminism, feminist, etc.)
