Summary
  • "Highlights the use and focus of comics by librarians and library workers who practice critical librarianship"--
  • Comic collections have existed in academic institutions for over fifty years. Libraries have taken a variety of approaches to address differing philosophies and needs for their collections, but discourse has typically focused on the practical concerns of management and organization, considering the best ways to collect, catalog, shelve, and share comic books and trades, graphic novels, and more. As a growing body of practice and scholarship, critical librarianship provides essential perspectives on the power structure, systems, and social justice concerns within libraries. This edited work considers comics librarianship through the lens of critical librarianship, focusing on work done in and around the academic library. Presented through case studies, original research and essays, and personal reflection, the book engages with topics from collection and cataloging to teaching and outreach, with contributors representing academic libraries and academic archival collections of varying sizes and populations across the United States and Canada. --
