Archives & Special Collections at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center, University of Connecticut Libraries
The Northeast Children's Literature Collection (NCLC) houses and maintains books, manuscripts, artwork, and other related materials of authors and illustrators from or associated with New England and the Eastern Seaboard. The collection was founded in the 1960s and is
located in Archives & Special Collections at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center. Since its start, the NCLC has grown to hold approximately 45,000 books and the manuscript collections of 123 authors and illustrators. The collections are used by students, faculty, scholars and members of the public for personal, professional, and academic research. With the hiring of Dr. Francelia Butler in 1965, the University of Connecticut has a history of elevating the way children's literature is seen from a scholastic perspective. The NCLC strives to support scholarship in the field and preserve archival materials for the future.
Created as part of a cooperative program with the Writing Internship Program at the Department of English and Archives & Special Collections at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center, UConn Libraries.
