  • �Developing collections of graphic novels and other works of narrative and sequential art has been making waves for the past few years, but libraries in France and Quebec have been collecting “bande dessinée” for decades. As opposed to comic books, the Franco-Belgian format of choice is the “album”. These hard- covered books of about 50 pages are more than suitable for our institutions. Some collections in Quebec even top the 10,000 document mark!

    �When the Bibliothèque Nationale du Québec merged with the City of Montréal’s central library, it was quite natural to develop the english-language Graphic Novel collection. Unfortunately, collections development in this area is still a burgeoning field. That is why Olivier Charbonneau, Subject Librarian and Researcher at Concordia University, was brought in to propose 1000 English language Graphic Novels for the collection.

    �Different techniques were employed to select the document The main selection tool is included in this document. It shows the number of nominations and awards granted to english language comic books, graphic novels and other works of sequential art. The data for three awards was compiled in an Microsoft Access database created by Olivier Charbonneau. The awards are as follows:

    Harvey Award Winners MoCCA Art Festival: New York City http://harveyawards.org/

    Will Eisner Comic Industry Award Comic-Con International: San Diego, CA http://users.rcn.com/aardy/comics/awards/eisnersum.shtml

    Ignatz Award Winners The Small Press Expo: Bathesda, Maryland http://www.spxpo.com/ignatzaward.htm

    A selection tool for the "Adult" Graphic Novels Circulating Collection of the Bibliothèque Nationale du

    In essence, any document that received an award was selected if it was available in book format. As well, if any single creator that had received multiple awards, his or her works ewre recommended for purchase. Unfortunately, this database will not be maintained. A seperate tool (http://www.marsimports.com/) was used to determine the availability of the documents on the market.

    Thank you for your interest in this list and graphic novels !
