Every term I produce a booklet called Children's Literature Update, a subject index to relevant articles in journals the Library subscribes to, plus some newspaper articles. Eventually, we hope to have the index available as a searchable database on our webpages, but for now it is available for collection from the display area of the children's section in the Library and I will keep a log of new articles here.
Last term's index went out just before Christmas, and I have started collecting material for the new one. Since coming back to work after the New Year I have gathered together the cuttings I collected in December, which are:
