Historical Children's Literature Collection

The Historical Children’s Literature Collection is a collaboration between UBC's iSchool and the Department of English Language & Literatures, and the UBC Library's Rare Books and Special Collections (RBSC), and Digitization Centre.

Featuring materials from RBSC’s historical children’s literature holdings, including the Arkley Collection of Early and Historical Children's Literature, the collection is particularly strong in chapbooks and early Canadian content.
