Subject(s):Comics Studies, Library Outreach, Graphic Novels, Collaboration, Community Building
Abstract:Presented at ACRL 2021. Comics Studies is an emerging field of study that brings scholarly attention to graphic narratives in a variety of published forms. While libraries have long recognized that comics are important materials to include in collections, collection development is only the first step in fostering a Comics Studies community. Librarians have a unique role to play in supporting innovative use of libraries’ collections of comics materials through outreach, education, and programming.This panel features scholar librarians who research, collect, and promote comics in their libraries, describing their experiences with creating comics studies communities at the campus, regional, and international levels.
