Welcome to the de Grummond Collection's
Electronic Reference Service

For all comments, suggestions or questions ...
Please use this linked form to send us your thoughts. We very much want to hear from you, particularly if you find something is in error on our site.

If you have a question...

First, please check to see if your question can be answered on one of our Frequently Answered Questions pages.

Second, due to our limited staff and the volume of questions we receive daily, we ask that you consider the following guidelines for using the Ask de Grummond reference service.

Types of Appropriate Questions

This service is designed to provide answers to queries about the de Grummond Collection and its holdings of books, manuscripts and illustrations. Due to increased demands on our limited staff, we find we can no longer answer questions about children's literature in general. Answers to that type of question can be found on our FAQs pages or in general reference sources like Something About the Author, or encyclopedias. Please check with your local public or school library for these resources.


Photocopies are $.25/each, plus $3.00 shipping and handling, or a minimum charge of $5.00.

Fees for research by our staff may also apply.

All fees must be received before any research or reproduction services begin.

When to Expect a Response

Since our staff is small, we ask that you allow us 2-3 weeks to respond to your query. This time period may be extended due to University Holidays..
