The Multicultural Literature for Children and Young Adults Database
Multicultural books for children and young adults are an invaluable resource for teaching about diversity. They serve as wonderful resources for helping students at all levels develop the skills, attitudes, and knowledge to be effective citizens in a pluralistic society.
When we began this project, there wasn't a current or reliable database for searching for multicultural children's literature. To fill this need, we created a database that we hope will be utilized by a wide range of faculty, students and librarians.
We would like to thank the Worthington Foundation for its generous financial support.
We would also like to thank the University of Washington Libraries for hosting the database and to Jake White, Armin Liedtke and Lisa Euster for their technical support.
