Learn about our Nesbitt Collection, comprised of children's literature & historic material

One of our own Special Collections is the Nesbitt Collection -- comprised primarily of children's literature and material related to the history of children and their books and media. The collection encompasses more than 12,000 items dating from the 1600's through the present day and includes books, magazines, audio-visual material, manuscripts, artifacts, and more. While many of the items are located within Hillman Library in Special Collections or Microforms, a number of items are housed in our Archives Service Center or our Storage Facility.

We have a subject guide that describes resources from the Nesbitt Collection and how to access materials from a variety of locations in a variety of formats:
