Childhood-Related Source Materials: Library Building Project

*apologies for cross-posting


I am looking for primary source materials related to childhood studies in order to build a resource library for graduate students and instructors.

My name is Emily Slomski. I am a second year graduate student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln under the advisement of Dr. Will Thomas.

Due to the nature of childhood studies, it can be quite difficult to efficiently gather primary source materials related to the study of childhood/youth. I aim to build an expansive database that will be curated for general and specialized needs.

In addition to primary source materials, I am also interested in any archival collections, digital projects, and online exhibits that could be used as resources.

I am looking for all time frames, geographical regions, and themes. I will widely distribute access to the library when it is built.

If you have source materials, or would like to discuss further, please reach out via email to:


All my best,
