Beyond Tintin: Collecting European Comics in the U.S. Program Moscone Convention Center
3004 (W)
Description :

What are the major trends in European comics? What tools exist to help us build an international collection encompassing the various formats—graphic novels, minicomics, webcomics? More and more, libraries seek to support the growing interest comics are receiving from scholars. Our panel of two distinguished professors, a writer/editor of graphic novels, and a curator of a major comics library survey the European comics scene, offering practical suggestions about collecting in this burgeoning field. This is a joint program sponsored by SEES and WESS. This program is sponsored in name only by ACRL LES and the ALA Graphic Novels & Comics in Libraries Member Interest Group.
