Annual Conference Session
ALA Unit/Subunit: ALA
Meeting Type: Discussion Group
Cost: Included with full conference registration.
Librarians love comics! And they know a lot about them: collecting them, using them, defending them. But what conversations aren't we having about comics and libraries, and what areas still exist for comics-librarian-exploration?
Join Toronto Comic Arts Festival programmers Lindsay Gibb (OCADU) and Andrew Woodrow-Butcher (The Beguiling Library Services) as they host a brief update on the the state of comics librarianship professional development across North America. The majority of this session will be a discussion with other librarians and professionals (you!) to identify the various gaps and opportunities that we see for skills, knowledge, and resource development around comics librarianship.
