What happens when you let a librarian blend their personal interest in graphic novels and manga with collection development and outreach, even if it falls outside of their primary work areas? This session will cover the basics of building and managing graphic novel and manga collections in academic libraries, the development of our library’s graphic novel and manga collection, as well as some of the ways in which our library has worked to increase student engagement using graphic novels and manga as a draw.


Presented at SUNYLA 2020, held online from 6/17-6/18/2020.

Conference session was recorded and is available on through SUNYLA on Youtube.

Accompanying session handout is available as a LibGuide.
