EDUC 412 - Children's Literature: Juvenile Collection

Searching Primo

About

The library's juvenile literature collection is located in the lower level of the Murdock Learning Resource Center in Newberg (in the same room that also houses the K-12 curriculum collection).  The juvenile collection includes easy-read and picture books, fiction and non-fiction.

Searching Primo

Books in our juvenile collection can be searched through Primo, the library's discovery service.  For example, search Primo for books on fairy tales, limiting your search to books at GFU.  When the results are displayed on your screen, under "Physical Location" in the left side bar select the juvenile collection options.
