Children's Literature

This is a guide to children's literature


Welcome to the guide for Children's Literature!

I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for your research in Children's Literature. I have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as freely available web resources. Included in this guide are books, databases, special collection information, Internet resources, and professional associations. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress, developed with the suggestions and feedback from students and faculty.

The WSU Library System strives to meet your needs for resources and information access. Please contact us if you need any assistance with library resources or services, if you would like to incorporate library resources directly into your Blackboard site, or if you would like to arrange for library instruction for your classroom.
