The UC Berkeley Library houses a very selective collection of children's literature shelved in the Main Stacks, the Morrison Library and the Northern Regional Library Facility (NRLF). There are also many non-English language children's books held in other campus libraries such as the East Asian Library. The Berkeley Library's collection specializes in literature for school-aged children, books supporting multicultural education and, over the years, has acquired many award-winning books.
