Searching for Books in the CU Library

There are two methods for locating books in the CU Library's collection to use during your reading coaching.

Search for books by type/topic in the library catalog

This is a good place to start if you are looking for a specific type/topic of book (such as rhyming picture books or graphic novels). Put the type of book you want in the search box and then choose "Children's Literature" from the drop down menu.

Good topics to try in our catalog are:

  • rhyme
  • alphabet
  • counting
  • number
  • graphic novel
  • picture book [your topic]
    • for example: picture book biography
  • early reader [your topic]
    • for example: early reader animals
  • fiction [your topic]
    • for example: fiction lions
  • nonfiction [your topic]
    • for example: nonfiction Mexico

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Search by book title in the library catalog

If you have a list of books at the levels you need, you will want to search the CU Library catalog to find out if we own them. You can do this by searching for the title of the book in the box to the right, and then select Children's Literature from the CU LIbrary Catalog drop down box.
