LITR 306: Children's Literature: Home


Welcome! This guide will serve as a helpful resource to complete your assignments for LITR 306. If you need additional help, you can contact me directly using the Email Me link located under my picture on the right hand side of this guide, or you can contact a librarian using any of the methods indicated in the box labeled "Contact a Librarian" also placed on the right hand side of this guide. If you would like to learn a little bit more about me, please feel free to watch the box with my introductory video located on the right hand side. 

Locating Children's Books Online

There are many places to locate Children's Books Online. Many publishers will have channels on YouTube where authors or other people read a story. Many times they share the pictures on the screen as well. Below you will find a list of places to find picture books online. Some are video formatted (where you watch someone read the story), while others are scanned copies of the books that you can then flip through to see each page without audio narration. This list is not meant to be exhaustive, but to be a place to get you started finding popular and historical titles. 

Finding Articles Online

Even though you may be remote, many of the resources available to you through Milne Library are available online. We have access to multiple databases that will be helpful for finding supporting sources for your assignment. Below is a list of databases that, while not exhaustive, will help you get started with your research. 

Finding eBooks in the Library's Collection

While the library is currently not offering remote checkout to students, we do still have eBooks that might be helpful for your assignment. Watch the video below to learn how to access eBooks in the Milne Library Catalog. The video is part of the library's Pandemic Library Coffee Hour series hosted on the library's instagram account (@milne.oneonta), which is why it has a fun little intro bit. 

Interlibrary Loan

The ILLiad system enables current SUNY Oneonta students, faculty, and staff to obtain academic and intellectual materials from other libraries. Your ILLiad account will allow you to:

  • -- borrow items from other libraries
  • -- make online requests for periodical articles from other libraries
  • -- review the status of your requests
  • -- check due dates of outstanding loans
  • -- ask for renewals
  • -- and much more.


*The library is currently allowing students to request digital items only through ILLiad. No physical items are being processed at this time.*

Librarians are available to help in several ways: 

  • Call the Reference Desk at 607-436-2722
