Surf:  Exploring online can lead to a variety of information about the resources of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (including intellectual freedom support), then to Columbia University’s Graphic Novels Page (a treasure trove of information) and then to certain historical notes and information about the Library of Congress Comic Book Collection.  The Library of Congress information includes the following:

  • The Library of Congress Comic Book Collection contains titles from the United States and other countries.
  • There is an Underground Comic Book Collection at the Library of Congress.
  • It is possible to do comics research at the Library of Congress via certain procedures.
  • Tips are provided for using Library of Congress Subject Headings for comics.

Search: A more direct search will lead to a general introduction to the Library of Congress Comic Book Collection within the Library’s website.
