Finding Juvenile Literature

The University Libraries has two primary childrens' literature collections:  The Virginia Westerberg Juvenile Literature Collection and The Donald Beaty Bloch Children's Literature Collection.

Juvenile Literature

The Virginia Westerberg Juvenile Literature Collection can be found in two locations depending on the call number of the book. 

  • Juvenile books with a PZ call number are located in the Norlin Stacks on floor 3C.

  • Juvenile books with call numbers other than PZ are located in Pascal (the University Libraries off-site storage facility).  Use “Request it”  to have the book delivered to a campus Library within one business day.

The Donald Beaty Bloch Children's Literature Collection is currently uncataloged. The collection includes 19th and 20th century English and American children's books and periodicals, with an emphasis on illustration. To view these items, contact Special Collections: Email or call 303-492-6144 to schedule an appointment.
