The Children's and Young Adult Collection in Norlin Library is a small teaching and browsing collection of up to 5,000 materials that support students in the School of Education and also children and young adults in the CU and wider Boulder communities. We focus on collecting major award winning titles and purchase additional fiction and non-fiction materials to support the focuses of the School of Education, including books with racial and ethnic diversity, diverse gender and sexuality, disabilities or exceptionalities, and science and math books.

Children's and young adult fiction and non-fiction books are shelved together using the Library of Congress call number system. Additional materials, including more than 5,000 additional current and historical children's books, are housed in PASCAL, our off-site storage facility in Denver. They can be requested through our library catalog or the local Prospector network.
