As a format, comics cover so many genres, subject matter and identities, which makes comic collecting exciting, but also overwhelming. Comics advocates Lindsay Gibb and Andrew Woodrow-Butcher will give webinar attendees an in-depth look into best-practices for comics collection development including the ways library workers can build a better understanding of what comics work in their libraries.

You will learn: 
1) Comics collection development
2) How to grow readership for comics 
3) The breadth of subjects comics can cover
