Children and Young Adult Literature: Welcome

Rowan University Libraries houses a selective collection of children and young adult literature. These collections are housed on the 2nd (second) floor of Campbell Library.



The Children and Young Adult Literature Research Guide is intended to provide researchers with access to current and historical materials.  Researchers in disciplines such as English, Reading, History, and Literature, and elementary education students, will find relevant resources using this guide.  

Rowan University Libraries currently houses the Children and Young Adult (YA) books in Campbell Library in rooms 230 and 231 (labeled the Current Periodicals Reading Room).
