The resources of the de Gummond Collection are used by scholars, not only in the field of children's literature, but also researchers in a variety of disciplines including library science, education, English, history, sociology, women's studies, popular culture and American studies.
In addition to the Collection's original materials, books and periodicals, we also have extensive holdings of reference works, biographies, subject bibliographies, critical works and genre studies.
While our small staff is happy to assist you with your project, we must limit our help to off-site researchers. Much information can be obtained online.
If you find a book, article or item that is not fully described on the webpage, we are happy to provide more specific information. Online biographies, bibliographies and databases are provided as a starting point for more general queries.
