Butler Library has a thriving graphic novels collection with over 1300 titles to date.
During the Spring 2010 semester, the display cases on Butler’s 3rd floor present an exhibition designed to encourage interest in using these unique resources in curriculum and research. Seven themes are presented; for each theme an image from traditional art–something more conventionally suitable to illustrate the concept–is matched with three images from graphic novels.
This exhibition coincides with Will Eisner Week, a celebration of graphic novels honoring the artist credited with legitimizing the format. We hope you’ll enjoy it!
If you have any questions, suggestions or comments about the collection, please contact Karen Green, the Graphic Novels Librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
