This time around I’m doing it solo (though many thanks to the fantastic Beth Gallaway and Linda Braun for being my co-teachers in the past) and it’ll be pretty much the new and improved version of my in person workshops and lectures. The cool part is that I get a full month to really delve into everything, so I won’t have to talk a mile a minute (which I do anyway) and we as a class can actually take time to get into the nitty gritty questions of graphic novel collection development.
If you’ve never tried it, online classes are a great way to learn — I did my entire library degree that way, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and I still maintain it was one of the best learning experiences I’ve ever had.
The class is
Isn’t Otaku a Kind of Sushi: Graphic Novels, Manga and Anime (from May 1-31st)
