Writing a Children’s Book

A request we’ve been getting recently at the reference desk is “Can you show me some picture books students have done as part of a thesis?”

OK, this is how to do it!

Children's stories

Select subject alphabetical from the left-hand catalog search box, and then type  children’s stories in the right-hand box. You should get a result list of 378 titles (this number will rise as more theses are added to the collection). In the top right-hand corner of the page you’ll see sort by and limit by boxes. Choose publication date in the sort by box so you’ll get the latest titles at the top of your result list and then select theses* in the limit by box. Don’t forget to click on the title of items you are interested in to make sure they are checked in.

To locate theses go to the rear of the library – they’re on your left and bound in green. Librarian’s tip: theses are organized by the last set of letters and number, in the example above Y29u.
