About the Collection

We keep a variety of historically valuable children’s materials which can be found in the Claudia Lewis Reference and Research Collection, located between the Theses and the Textbooks in the main library.  The collection includes biographies, fiction, non-fiction, and picture books. 

Many can be identified by the letters CL in their call numbers, but others begin with the letter J. 

Most of the books in the collection are for reference purposes only, but some materials can be checked out for 14 days.  Reference books have the sticker "Use in Library Only."  However, there are reference materials in the Claudia Lewis Collection that are also available for loan in other parts of the library.
