The original problem of the Special Collections division of the Michigan State University Library (msu) was to establish a direction for the comic book section of the popular culture collection, and to state the holdings in the chosen area. The comics chosen as the target collection were the superhero comics of the 1960's through 1975, as this was the most nearly complete collection. The author's definition of a superhero is included. Through the study of the comic collection, a system for cataloging and indexing comics was developed. Information provided by the cataloging system includes a call number, title, publisher, issues published, notes, msu holdings, and additional holdings as reprints. This information is tabulated for the superhero comics in the collection and also for the western comics, war and military comics, romance comics, and others. The card catalog for the comic collection contains Author-Title cards and Subject Index cards for each item in the collection. A list of subject headings and an author-title list of all holdings in the msu collection are included. (Jab)

Indexing the comics : a librarian's perspective on comics research by Randall W Scott( Book )
4 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
The potential for computers in indexing popular fiction study materials is discussed, and specific examples of comic book indexing are provided through descriptions of projects and a bibliography. The 4-stage evolutionary development of popular fiction studies includes: (1) discovery and reading; (2) bibliography and collecting; (3) cataloging and indexing; and (4) history and criticism. Librarians, particularly with the help of computers, can contribute to the collection, preservation, cataloging, and indexing of comic books, an area of popular fiction largely ignored by libraries in the past. Major comic book indexing projects are now under way for the two largest United States comic book publishers, Marvel and dc. Various other indexing projects have examined specific aspects of comics. A bibliography lists the comic indexes in the Russel B. Nye Popular Culture Collection at Michigan State University. (Cwm)
