of Library and Information Science asks the
National Children's Book and Literacy Alliance
to serve in an advisory capacity for their new
Butler Children's Literature Center!
Susan Roman, the Dean of Dominican University's Graduate School of Library and Information Science, has asked the National Children's Book and Literacy Alliance to serve on the advisory board for their recently established Butler Children's Literature Center. The NCBLA is thrilled and honored to serve and will be represented at Advisory Board Meetings by NCBLA president and executive director Mary Brigid Barrett.
Established in 2007 with a gift from the Butler Family Foundation, GSLIS’s forthcoming Butler Literature Center seeks to become one of the nation’s premier centers for the study of children’s and young adult literature. The Butler Literature Center will serve as an examination center for children’s and young adult books published annually in the United States, and as an historical collection of the best children’s and young adult literature published nationally and internationally. The Center will also serve as an evidence-based, best practices professional collection in support of the application and integration of children’s and young adult literature in classrooms, libraries, childcare centers, and homes. Open to educators, scholars, researchers, librarians, teachers, parents, and other care providers for children, the Center plans to offer a robust selection of programs, conferences, continuing education courses, web resources, and research opportunities. University partners include the School of Education and the Rebecca Crown Library.
