Children's Book Collections
This collection reflects the holdings of a K-12 level school library. Older editions of fiction, nonfiction and picture books for children are available in the historical children's book collection. Many of the books illustrate some of the earlier trends in the development of children's literature.
The IMC also maintains a collection of mixed media resources, whether appropriate for use by young children or university students and instructors. Formats include games, realia, models, puppets, and larger curricular sets. Faculty/staff requests for purchase of materials for the media collection are made through the regular acquisitions channels (through Collection Development). Requests should include an indication of the specific format of the material.
