TCE 315P (Hamilton): Folktale/Fairy Tale Project

Fairy Tale Project Resources

The pages listed below are intended to support your Folktale Comparison small group assignment. Each page lists versions of a specific folktale/fairy tale that can be used for this project. These versions are all print copies of the books which are available at the Miami Hamilton Campus library. The links will take you directly to the catalog record for that title so that you can see whether it is available for checkout. Feel free to visit the library and ask for help finding these books on the shelf or to place a hold request on titles that you want (see screenshot below).

Finding Books

The lists of books available for checkout in each category in the box above are all print copies located at the Miami University Hamilton library. Licenses for e-book versions of these titles are difficult for libraries to obtain.

Additional print copies of these books may be available at the Oxford or Middletown campus libraries. You can search for those by clicking on the title of a book in a list and scrolling to the bottom of the page that opens. Items from other MU libraries can be requested for pick up at the Hamilton Campus.

These lists include only a limited selection of the books we own from each category. You can search for books that are not on the lists using the info below:

Tip: Include the term "juvenile" in your search to ensure that you receive children's materials if you are searching by keyword.

Tip: You can also get a citation for these books in MLA format. Scroll back up to the right side toolbar and click "Cite." Scroll through the citation styles and find MLA. Highlight, copy, and paste the citation into your Works Cited page. You may lose formatting, such as italics and hanging indents when you paste. You will need to make these corrections manually on your Works Cited page before turning in the paper.


Fairy Tale Collections

In addition to versions of individual fairy tales, we have several books of collected fairy tales. These can be used for this project (as one of the versions if your fairy tale is included) or for the folk and fairy tale section of the bibliography project.
