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

Why We Work:
The Schulz Library
In the summer of 2011, as the White River swelled during Hurricane Irene, a bucket brigade of cartoon students, CCS staff, and community members, evacuated the library’s 10,000 volumes. Emotions ran high that night as graphic novels, comic strip collections, and mini-comics passed from hand-to-hand. As a community of cartoonists we are well aware of the debt we owe those that came before us and the appreciation for these books (and the cartoonists who made them) fueled a heroic effort. Working through the night, not a single volume was lost.

New Book Features CCS Sketchbooks
“This book, just one of the recent acquisitions to the Schulz Library’s “artists sketchbook” section, is both visually impressive and intellectually stimulating. For fans of comics, it’s a fascinating insight into the minds of successful creators. For other artists, and students like myself, it can also be a profound source of inspiration and a reminder that there is no one “right way” to create comics and comic art.”–Sasha Steinberg, guest writer for The Schulz Blog
