The Eileen Wallace Children's Literature Collection is the largest research collection of its kind in Atlantic Canada. Endowed by librarian and long-time educator, Eileen Wallace, this non-circulating collection comprises over 12,000 monographs and 5000 microfiche titles. Supplemented by the UNB Libraries' circulating collection in children's literature and children's literary criticism, the Eileen Wallace Collection is the key resource for the study of children's literature within the region. The collection contains comprehensive holdings of Atlantic Canadian literature for children and has overarching strengths in folklore, notable Canadian children's books, and reproduction and original popup/moveable books.
