Collection Development Policy Statement: Comics

Comic Strips of the United States

The comic strip collection includes over 500 scrapbooks of clipped newspaper strips dating from the 1920's into the 1980's, plus most books that reprint comic strips. An effort is being made to purchase every book that has collected and reprinted comic strips in the English language. This collection cannot be termed comprehensive, because what is available in book form is only a small fraction, probably less than ten percent, of what has been published. We do not collect original art for comic strips. A collection of clipped comic strips is arranged by topic and keyword.

Collecting intensity: 4.
