by Cindy L. Yonovich

RESEARCH STRATEGY FOR CHILDREN'S LITERATURE

Use a wide variety of sources & take advantage of the INDEXING for Children’s Literature!

  • Reference works are available in online and paper

    • Use them for background, overview, biographical info & literary criticism

    • They vary in scope and format

    • Look for multiple indexes to help you

  • Online databases allow you to apply limits and/or combine terms for optimal results

    • Sources include magazines, newspapers & journals

    • Use them for book reviews, author interviews, film reviews, etc

    • Each database has its own editorial policy and navigates differently

  • The online catalog allows you to search for books by author, title, subject & keyword

    • Use it to find books in the MCCC Children's Literature Collection

    • You can also find books about children's literature, awards, etc. in the MCCC collection

    • Consider using the Monroe County Library System to find additional materials

  • Web sites

    • Contain recent info--note the author, authenticity & currency

    • Find recent award winning children's books, plus author pages
