Children's Literature


Hello, and welcome to the Stratton Taylor Library's Children's Literature research guide!  This guide is designed to be a library resource portal for information on children's and young adult literature.  From here, you can search electronic dictionaries and encyclopedias, access core literature and education databases for scholarly literature and book reviews, and find books in the library's collection through our catalog.  This guide also includes a list of digital libraries and publishers which provides access to children's books in full text, book reviews, and author interviews. To get started, click on the links below.  (You can also navigate this guide using the menu at the left side of this page.)  If you have any questions, or if you need help with your research, please feel free to contact the library at (918)343-7716, or by using the "Get Help" box at the left side of this page.
