Social Science, Health, and Education Library
100 and 101 Main Library
The Social Sciences, Health, and Education Library holds a very large collection of books written for children and young adults, plus books, journals and other resources about literature in the K-12 classroom.
About This Guide
Students and practiciing librarians seek information about young adult literature for varied purposes. You might be looking for good books to recommend to a reluctant teen reader. You might need reviews and other resources to counter a book challenge. You might be creating a thematic reading promotion event, or planning a book talk, or just looking for a good, quick read.
The resources spotlighted in this guide were selected to help you complete assignments in LIS 404, Literature & Resources for Young Adults, as well as support your independent exploration of YA literature.
Last update: March 3, 2012.
This database includes bibliographic records for over a million children's and YA books, enhanced with full-text book reviews and other information.
These two databases are on the EbscoHost platform and may be searched simultaneously.
This database is on the ProQuest platform.
