Spotlight on Meanwhile, Back in the Library...

The Library is very excited to announce that its next exhibition will be Meanwhile, in the Library which will look at how comics, graphic novels, cartoons, newspaper strips, caricatures and picture books can be used within academia and how they connect with  subject areas such as science, game design, film, journalism, autobiography and art. 

Why not use a comic and academic text together to help get into a subject! Here are a selection of  related comics to get you started. Unsure about this approach...take a look at these articles!
