Brown Bag: Why Children's Books Belong in Academic Libraries (Glenn Worthey)

We all know that the true and actual purpose of children’s books is to be read by children. But what else are children's books for? What scholarly purposes can they serve, and why should otherwise "grownup" academic libraries go to the trouble and expense of collecting and preserving them? This talk by Glen Worthey will explore the varied roles of children's books as uniquely valuable research sources. Be sure to bring your lunch and plenty of questions for this fascinating discussion!

A recording of the event will also be available at a later date on our website.
