Graphic novels have found a place on library shelves but many librarians struggle to move this expanding body of intellectual, aesthetic, and entertaining literature into the mainstream of library materials. This guide includes
  • A short course in graphic novels, along with reading lists and professional tools
  • Tips on advising graphic novel readers on what to read next
  • Suggestions for introducing graphic novels to those patrons unacquainted with them
  • Advice on promoting your graphic novels collection
With energy and commitment born of professional experience and a deep love for graphic novels, Goldsmith provides the first guide to the genre aimed specifically at readers advisors, while presenting an abundance of resources useful to every librarian.
