How to Find Graphic Novels

To find graphic novels, search GLOCAT using the search terms "graphic novels" (in quotes) and your subject area, theme or topic.

  • "graphic novels" AND friendship
  • "graphic novels" AND science 

In addition, consider searching for books that focus on teaching with comics or graphic novels. Many times they contain annotated book lists broken down by subject, topic, or grade level.

Once in the journal record scroll down to the "View Online" section and click the "Show License" button.  Then, click one of the "Full Text Availability" options to check for dates available. Clicking any of these options will take out of GLOCAT and land you into the database that host the journal. (See video below)
