Cartoon & Comics Research

This guide provides an overview of cartoon related resources
The goal of the Cartoon & Comics Research Guide is to provide an overview of resources available at The Ohio State University Libraries. Please see the Table of Contents to the left to begin your search.

Guide Overview 

Most materials referenced in this guide can be found at The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum. While other libraries on campus do have some of these materials, this library is being highlighted in particular because it is the world’s largest collection of materials related to cartoons and comics.

These collections include original art, books, magazines, journals, comic books, archival materials, and newspaper comic strip pages and clippings.

If you wish to see any of these materials, feel free to stop by the library or contact library staff to set up an appointment.
