How to Find Non-Fiction Books for Children
You can find nonfiction books by searching for a subject and adding juvenile literature to your search. Examples are:
War - Juvenile literature
Human body - Juvenile literature
You can use a keyword search and then check for specific subject headings to narrow your results.
These are links to books in MOBIUS. Columbia College Missouri students, staff, and faculty can request books through MOBIUS.
Children’s and young adult literature materials can be found by searching the library’s online catalog. The most common searches are by the author’s name, the title of the item, or by subject heading. You can also do a search with key words. If you combine the word "juvenile" with a subject, you will get a list of children's books with those words in the subject headings.
Choose the search option, "Children's Subject" to search children's materials. If you search for a subject such as “horses,” you will retrieve non-fiction items about horses; if you search for “horses fiction,” you will retrieve stories about horses.
Note: if you do a subject search for "children's literature," you will retrieve materials about children's literature, not actual examples of children's literature.
