Arizona State University is launching a new digital book collection in its libraries thanks to funding from the ASU Parents Association Library Endowment.

The ASU Library eBook collection will include Kindle eReaders and eBook editions of young adult novels from 1988-2008. The electronic collection is being named in honor of young adult literature scholar Alleen Pace Nilsen who is professor of English in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and director of the English Education Program at ASU.

Nilsen is selecting books to include in the collection, which come from the “YA Lit Honor List” published by Nilsen each November in the English Journal. So far, this includes 41 titles.

A wall plaque in ASU’s Hayden Library will read: “ASU Libraries Kindle E-Book Young Adult Literature Collection in honor of Dr. Alleen Nilsen.”
