The archives and book collection of the CLRU was started in 1995 by the Department of Information Science as the result of an international conference on children’s literature held at the University of South Africa. Over the years embassies and delegates from abroad have continued to donate books to the Children’s Literature Research Unit. At present the collection consists of about 1400 publications.
The Collection is administered as a special collection in the Archives & Special Collections Section of the Unisa Library. All the publications are available for loan purposes.
