mainland.jpgMy favorite course in library school was children's literature, taught by Pat Donlon, the former National Librarian of Ireland. Having said that, I did not come across our (current) favorite children's author, Mairi Hederwick, until several years later when I was looking in the bookstore in Edinburgh Airport for something to bring home with me on a trip. Katie Morag and the two grandmothers was the first of many of these delightfully drawn stories to pass through the house.

I thought of this as I looked at The ESSL Children's Literature Blog, one of several from UIUC libraries.

Paula Kaufman has had a web presence on scholarly communications issues for a while - I notice from the list that this has now also been bloggified.
