Many of you will find books by using the internet. When you find a book you like, type in the name of the book and the last name of of the author in the search box on the library homepage to see if TCU owns the book.
Then find the book on the shelf by using the call number.
Here is how you browse for children's books at the TCU Library:
When considering your topic, think about synonyms -- other words to try. For example, if your topic is "environmentalism," what other words can you use?
Think about what words a child might use to find this information.
Our Juvenile Collection also contains young adult books, and most of them do not have pictures. To find children's books specifically, search for books with illustrations. "Ill." is the abbreviation used in our library catalog to notate that a book contains illustrations. To find picture books specifically, include "ill." as a term in your search. For example: Pollution AND "ill."
The search form resets itself every time you do a search. Remember to change the "Collection" back to "Juvenile Collection" or you will get too many irrelevant results.
