Hey! Can I ask how those are cataloged? Are they all near each other in the collection?

At our library we have Comics/Graphic Novels in one section and then comics as in strips (Dilbert, Far Side) over in Non-Fiction. I really think that if the strips were over with the others they would circulate far more. Just wondering!

We use LCCNs, and nearly all of the comics (including comic strips) are in the PN 6700s. So they all end up co-located near each other on the shelves.

Pictures!

It heartens me to see more comics in Libraries. It has been a great tool to get kids to read when they are reluctant. Let's hope we have more good stories to tell.
