Due to major system maintenance, you will not be able to request items through MeLCat beginning on November 18, 2015. Renewals for MeLCat items will still be possible until December 2, 2015. The system should be available for requesting again in early December. If you are MSU faculty, student or staff, please try Uborrow. Our community borrowers will not have access to interlibrary loan through MSU during that time. For more information, please read this MeLCat Server Migration FAQ. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The Comic Art Collection holds over 200,000 items. Most of these items are American comic books, but also included are over 1,000 books of collected newspaper comic strips, nearly 15,000 foreign comic books, and several thousand books and periodicals about comics. Although some archival materials are held, the focus of the collection is on published work, in an effort to present a complete picture of what the American comics readership has seen, especially since the middle of the twentieth century.
