This Children's Literature/School Library Media Guide offers resources for getting to know pertinent topics and concepts in those areas. From the above tabs, you will find web-based and print resources on a variety of topics in these subjects. A number of the resources and subjects overlap, you would expect this since Information Science is an interdisciplinary field. If you need any assistance with using these resources; require help with locating additional resources; or want to recommend an addition to this guide, feel to contact your Information Science Librarian.
Books may be located using the Libraries' Discovery Tool. Most books related to School Media and Librarianship are located at the Dewey Graduate Library. Books on Children's Literature can be found at the Dewey Library (Librarianship) and The University Library (Education) Locations are indicated in the Discovery Tool record. Materials from the uptown campus may be retrieved by using the UA Document Delivery service. Using this service, students and faculty can ask that books be transferred from the University or Science Libraries to be picked up at Dewey. Print journal articles can be scanned and made accessible online, as well.
