The Children's Literature Research Collections is open to the public, but supervised use by researchers is confined to the Elmer L. Andersen Library Reading Room, and all materials must be pulled in advance by a staff person. Information on finding books or archival material is below.

Please contact asc-clrc@umn.edu for reference assistance or to set up an appointment to view materials.

Books

To find books, please search the University of Minnesota Library Catalog.

 
Explore the University of Minnesota Libraries catalog for information about rare and special books, periodicals, and other publications held by the Children's Literature Research Collections.

Looking for children's books you can check out?

Everything held in the CLRC must be viewed on-site. If you are looking for a circulating children's collection on campus, the College of Education and Human Development hosts a small Curriculum Library in Peik Hall. For more information visit their website. For larger circulating collections of children's literature, we recommend checking out your local public library.

Collection Guides
