Shelving and displays that reflect comic readers' browsing habits, creative programs that boost circulation of comics and graphic novels, and how comics can play a vital role in educational institutions are also covered. * Addresses common challenges librarians face with comics and graphic novels collections, and shows how to surmount them * Offers a solutions-focused approach * Describes how comics can be used to better engage your community and to educate youth * Fills a gap in the professional literature, covering topics not touched upon in the existing literature * Serves as a vital resource for public, academic, and school libraries
