Was This Guide Helpful?



Welcome!  This guide was created in order to help you find information on all things graphic novel related.

Below is a map showing you where graphic novels live in the stacks at Pratt Brooklyn Library, while the side tabs highlight some of the fun and interesting graphic novels we carry.  

By navigating through the tabs above you will find helpful resources available through Pratt Institute Libraries inculding a list of great databses to begin your research and an interactive timeline about the history of the graphic novel.  

This guide also included resources available outside of Pratt (hello awesome fansites!) along with a map that contains some of our favorite comic book stores located in NYC! 


Where are the graphic novels in the Brooklyn Campus Library?

At the Pratt Institute Libraries we use the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) to organize our collection.  That means that all things Graphic Novel related will be in 741.59.  The gif above pinpoints the exact aisle in the stacks one would need to go to in order to browse the collection at  the Brooklyn Campus Library. 

You can search our collection with our online catalog. PrattCat allows you to use one interface to search for items at both campus libraries (Brooklyn and Manhattan). You can search for graphic novels by author, title, or subject (helpful subject hint: use Graphic Novels Lcgft for most results).
