It is possible to locate children's books, fiction and non-fiction (literature), in AU library catalog by performing a simple keyword search for math and modifying search results by limiting location to MAIN Juvenile. Why limit the location? This removes results that are not located with juvenile books.
You may start your search using Advanced Keyword Search; choose this option from the Other Searches box on the library catalog home page. Enter math (any field) and limit location to main juvenile. Results displayed will include children's books pertaining to the general subject of math.
Keep in mind searching for only math may not return books on a specific math related topic, such as zero the number or comparison philosophy. The Math Topics & Concepts provides additional help with math topics.
