The Children's Literature Collection at Cal Poly Humboldt contains fiction and nonfiction children's and young adult literature. This collection is located on the 2nd floor of the University Library next to the Video and CD collection. Books in this collection are organized differently; Nonfiction works are organized using the Dewey Decimal System, and Fiction works are shelved in alphabetical order by author last name. Picture books have the call number "E", and Fiction is labeled with the call number "X".


Browsing in the main book collection is another good way to find books about children's literature. The two primary areas where these books are located are: PN 1009 and Z 1037; other areas are LB 1575 and PR 990.
