In which the mysterious origins of The League of Comics Librarians are finally revealed.
It was a particularly rainy afternoon in Seattle, Washington in the spring of 2011. All was quiet on campus of the University of Washington – students were busy studying and faculty were hard at work grading papers. But over at the iSchool, wheels were turning and monumental events were set in motion. A plan was forming.
Four library students joined forces to embark on a quest to explain comics to librarians, and librarians to comics fans. We are Sarah Barrett – The Tech Wizard, Megan Willan – The Readers’ Advisory Guru, Ryer Banta – The Instruction Whisperer and Andrew Brink – Mr. Classified. This blog grew out of a project in thesauri construction and readers’ advisory. We had so much fun, we just couldn’t stop.
This project is still getting off the ground, but we’re interested in any and all feedback/ideas/pitches/etc!
