The Looking Glass : New Perspectives on Children's Literature

The Looking Glass: New Perspectives on Children's Books is an electronic journal about children's literature. The site was launched April 2, 1997 -- International Children's Book Day. As our name suggests, we combine an interest in the traditional with an eye to the modern. Our readers and contributors are academics, librarians, teachers, parents and anyone else fascinated by the world of children's literature.
This journal is published by a small group of volunteers. Our expertise includes writing, editing, teaching, publishing, librarianship -- all the various aspects of children's books and literature. In the beginning, our parent organization was the Toronto Centre for the Study of Children's Literature (TCSCL), then housed at the Faculty of Information Studies, University of Toronto, now at York University. From 1 July 1998, however, The Looking Glass was independent of any institutional support. In July 2007 La Trobe University in Australia began providing hosting and technical support, utilising the OJS open access journal system.
