Finding Fiction: Children's/YA Fiction

Checking Out Books from the CRC

Books from the juvenile literature collection can be borrowed for 3 weeks at a time. You can check them out from and turn them in to the circulation desk on the 1st floor, just as you would a book from the main collection.

For more information, check out the guide to CRC services.

Juvenile Literature @ BGSU

Under Library of Congress Classification, juvenile fiction is ordinarily given a call number beginning with PZ.  At BGSU, however, it is part of the Curriculum Resource Center on the 2nd floor of Jerome Library, where the books are shelved by the first letter of the author's last name.

Physically browsing the juvenile literature collection is both possible and fun. To search for juvenile fiction in the catalog, set the Location to Curriculum Resource Center and search just as you would for other books. Keep in mind that the CRC also contains materials like textbooks and professional development resources for teachers, which may show up in your results. A book in the juvenile literature collection will have a call number beginning with juv and a Location  of CRC Juvenile Literature.

For reviews of children's picture books written by education majors and actual children, check out the CRC book review blog.
