Maximizing the Impact of Comics in Your Library: Graphic Novels, Manga, and More (Paperback)
Challenging librarians to rethink some of their traditional practices, Maximizing the Impact of Comics in Your Library provides creative and proven solutions for libraries of all types that want to get comics into the hands of fans and promote readership. The author describes how libraries would benefit from an in-house classification system and organization that accounts for both publishers and series.
In addition, acquiring comics can often be tricky due to renumbering of series, reboots, shifting creative teams, and more--this book shows you how to work around those obstacles. Shelving and displays that reflect comic readers' browsing habits, creative programs that boost circulation of comics and graphic novels, and how comics can play a vital role in educational institutions are also covered.
