Juvenile Collection 

The juvenile collection (children's books), located on the second floor of Ashland University Library, includes award winning titles such as Newbery and Caldecott Medal and Honor books, Coretta Scott King award books, ALA Best Books for Young Adults, Alex Award Winners and Children's and Teacher's Choice award books. Titles added to the juvenile collection are evaluated using professional reviews prior to purchase. An example of professional review journals used includes Booklist, Horn Book Magazine and School Library Journal.

To help students using the juvenile collection, LibGuides and web page resources have been developed for general use and specific course assignments.
