Collection Overview

Boston College Libraries contain a great number of resources useful for the study of children's literature. The Educational Resource Center (ERC) has a rich collection in the area of children's literature in both fiction and non-fiction. The collection includes titles ranging from teaching with children's literature to outstanding titles in children's literature. In addition, the collection contains classic titles in children's literature, award winning titles, reviews of children's literature, picture books, concept books, big books, best books for children and information about authors and illustrators.

New books are added monthly to the collection and are evaluated for their quality. The reference collection at the ERC features many useful print bibliographies to assist patrons in selecting specific titles based on a child's age, subject interest or genre. The entire collection may be accessed through Holmes, the Boston College Libraries online discovery tool.
