Shaw and Dean (People in the News)

15 Feb 2016 4:58 PM | Sarah Mangrum (Administrator)

In December 2015, Joyce Shaw and Peter Dean became the recipients of the first Friends of University Libraries’ grant to purchase award winning children’s books that portray Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in a realistic way. Shaw and Dean compiled a bibliography of the books as part of a poster presentation at the 2015 Fay B. Kaigler Children’s Book Festival. From this list of twenty-two books, eighteen were not owned by University Libraries in one or more collections.  This award will benefit three University Libraries’ collections that include children’s literature: the de Grummond Children’s Literature Collection, Cook Library Curriculum Materials Center and Gulf Coast Library Curriculum Lab.
