Yesterday an exlibris listserv member posted this query ....
"are there any special collections of graphic novels? Are any of
them online for bibliographical data? "
Do we at GNSIG have a list of graphic novel collections with links?
A UPenn librarian responded with ..." searchable in our OPAC as
"Steven Rothman Collection of Comics, Cartoons, and Graphic Novels"; our
entire comics/graphic novels special collection is searchable
(imaginatively enough) as "Comics Collection."
I followed up on the Penn library catalog in a slightly different way, with a general search for the keyword "graphic novel" as a phrase and got 227 results, not all of which are in their Rothman collection, Comics Collection, or Special Collections:
Which made me wonder if there are graphic novels that are not identified as such in cataloging. I would have expected there to be more than 227.
