Why We Work:
The Schulz Library
at The Center for Cartoon Studies

happiness_is_the_schulz_library_post

 

The Schulz Library at The Center for Cartoon Studies moved into its new home this past year. Thanks to donations from publishers, cartoonists, and faculty members the Schulz Library collection continues to grow. Thanks to R.Sikoryak and The Will Eisner Technology Initiative, The Schulz Library now has a new digital collection of thousands of golden and silver age comic books in a searchable data base. A robust technology resource, including EReaders, iPads, scanners, tablets, and laptops are also available for check-out. There’s hot tea for those who want to relax in one of the library’s comfy chairs where a cold winter’s day can be spent discovering a new favorite cartoonist or reading the book that made you want to become a cartoonist in the first place.

Visit the Schulz Blog to search the catalog, read interviews with faculty and alum, see some of our recent acquisitions, book reviews, and more.
