Juvenile Collection 

The juvenile collection - aka children's books - is located on the second floor of Ashland University Library. This collection includes award winning titles such as Newbery and Caldecott Medal, Coretta Scott King awards, ALA Best Books for Young Adults, and Alex award winners.

Titles added to the juvenile collection are evaluated using professional reviews prior to purchase;  examples of professional review journals used include Booklist, Horn Book Magazine and School Library Journal. To help students using the juvenile collection, resources have been developed for general use and specific course assignments.
