Multicultural Cinderella Tales Assignment

January 27, 2011

For those of you who have an assignment to find four different multicultural Cinderella tales geographically, here are some resources/hints:

1.  Limit your search in our online catalog to “Library Science Collection” so that you don’t have to wade through all library materials in your results list.

2.  Try this article/site: Book Links: May 2000 (v.9 no.5) Multicultural Cinderella Stories by Mary Northrup for a list of stories

3.  Try this Amazon list of Cinderella Stories from Around the World

4.  Try using KU’s Worldcat link to see if we have a particular title, and if not, which local libraries do have it.

5.  Try looking at the anthologies of tales for particular countries or cultures that are in the 398.2 area of the Library Science Collection. These titles won’t necessarily come from a single title search because the title in our system is the title of the anthology rather than the individual stories held within that volume.

6.  To access a list of Cinderella Tales compiled for the Rohrbach Library, click here! Thanks to our GA, Christopher Busch, for all of his work on this. We’re going to tweak it a bit more, but we wanted to get it up asap.
