Find Young Adult and Children's Books in the Catalog

To find Children's and Young Adult fiction using the Kraemer Family Catalog:

1. Click "Advanced Search"

2. Select "Subject" instead of "Any Field" from the drop down box.

3. Type "juvenile fiction" into the search box.

4. Change the "Location" field below the search box to either "Child Lit" or "Young Adult". Submit.

This will allow you to see all of the Children's OR Young Adult titles that we have in our library.

*If you want to see ALL of the Children's AND Young Adult titles do a Subject search using "juvenile fiction" and do NOT change the location setting.*

Browse Young Adult and Children's Books in the Library

In the Kraemer Family Library, the Young Adult and Children's books are not in the Main Collection. Instead, they have their own area on the second floor of the library in front of the bathrooms. See the map below.

The Young Adult books are indicated by a yellow YA sticker above the call number on the spine of the book. Young Adult and Children's books have a check out period of 3 weeks for all library users (including faculty and graduate students).

The newest Young Adult and Children's books to the collection can be found in the New Books area in the 2nd floor apse.
