Children’s Literature Archive

Children's Literature ArchiveThe Children’s Literature Archive contains over 2,500 texts for children written primarily between the late nineteenth century and the mid-twentieth century.  It is housed in the Centre for Digital Humanities at 111 Gerrard Street, Toronto, ON.  A joint project involving staff, faculty and students from  the Centre for Digital Humanities, the Department of English  and the Library has resulted in the development of a virtual exhibition space using Omeka software to highlight selections from the collection.  Students have also used the platform to curate and present their own digital exhibits using resources in the CLA collection.
