Are you looking for youth literature, from board books to teen novels? You've come to the right place!
Our Juvenile collection lives in a largely contained space.
The bulk of the youth collection is in L119b—that's the room across from the elevator, and right across from the hallway leading from the stairs.
Books in L119b are shelved alphabetically by author. Can't find something? It's possible it's been misshelved.
Want to look beyond SXU's collection? You can! Change the dropdown menu to select "All i-Share Libraries." You'll want to plan ahead, as it takes anywhere from three days to a week to get a book from i-Share.
Are you ready to research that youth literature? Here are some places to start!
Looking for more? Check out some books! You'll find books and compilations by children's literature experts, from people who study kids' literature to people who teach kids and work with youth literacy.
Play around with subject headings—if you're looking for research about Harry Potter, for instance you might want to try searching for fantasy fiction. And you can always ask a librarian for help!
Are you in need of youth media—or interested in learning more about it? Get started here!
SXU has selected youth films available on shelf! Here are a few tips and tricks for locating them.
Have you checked out SXU's streaming video content? You'll find documentaries pertaining to education, as well as educational resources.
Your local public library is often a treasure trove of information about children's media, including children's films and television programs.
Every film will not be appropriate for every kid—it's always a personal thing. Research your films, check their ratings, and use your judgement—you're the professional.
Did you know that education scholars have studied youth media, too? You have all sorts of amazing resources available if you're interested in studying (or producing!) it.
