Booklist’s Guide to Graphic Novels in Libraries

Sure, you know all about Booklist‘s Graphic Novels in Libraries Month campaign by now; you’ve devoured the July issue’s Spotlight on Graphic Novels, attended the Art of the (Graphic) Novel webinar, registered for the upcoming Art of the Graphic Novel, Part II webinar, pinned our “Comics ARE Real Books” buttons to most of your clothing, and Twitter stalked the phenomenon that is #ReadGraphic. But have you perused our one-of-a-kind issue supplement, Booklist‘s Guide to Graphic Novels in Libraries?

In these 32 pages (a.k.a. bliss incarnate), you will find tips and tricks for cataloging and shelving graphic novels, the key to collecting manga, a glimpse at graphic medicine, original comics from Simon Hanselmann and Steenz, and the list goes on. Take a peek at each special feature, interview, and resource, all gathered for your viewing pleasure, below.

Oh, and speaking of peeking, we’ll be posting exclusive video interviews with various graphic novel creators (including Raina Telgemeier, Mariko Tamaki, and Ru Xu) later this week—but to tide you over till then, we now present this sneak preview:

Until our next video, happy reading and viewing!
