Comic books, as a genre, have always had an unusual place in libraries. Among other problems, there is no definite rule on how to classify them. However, over the last twenty years, many libraries have developed special collections of comic books. These Comic Research Libraries (CRLs) are found in over fifty university, public, and museum libraries around the world. (For a complete list, see the directory which appears as an Appendix to this article.) Many CRLs also include collections of comic strips, books on the genre, and other comic-related paraphernalia, and often are part of a larger special collection. This article will look at fourteen of them, concentrating on the comic book aspect of the collections.
