Finding Historical Fairy Tales at CU

Finding Digitized Historical Fairy Tales

Many published books that are now in public domain (published prior to 1925) are digitized, though certainly not all of them. For finding specific books, a simple online search should bring up any digitized copies (if the book has been digitized). If you are looking to browse, try going to the following sites and searching a keyword:

Rare and Distinctive Collections


Classroom: Norlin M350B

Reading Room: Norlin E1B43
