What is a Graphic Novel?

Graphic novels are stories told in a comic format that express a continuous tale. The art in the graphic novel brings dimension to the story, breathing life to the dialogue and narrative. The images in a graphic novel enhance and reinforce the movement of the story, uniquely joining the text and drawings. Neither the art nor the text can tell the story alone.

Owl Card

Your Owl Card is your library card and enables you to check materials out of the library and access online electronic databases and journals off-campus.  The card must be activated at the Library prior to use.  This is a one-time procedure that takes less than a minute and is done in person for the protection of the cardholder.  For more information on the Owl Card and its use on campus, click here.
