Comics and Graphic Novels from Spain

Paco Roca

Locating comics and graphic novels in the Library is hardly straight forward but this guide for recent publications from Spain is one of many short bibliographies to come. Francophone Europe and Italy are next! For more information, see the new Library Research Guide for European Comics & Graphic Novels.

The Library's new discovery tool - Start your search - can bring together content of interest to those working in the Romance languages. Resources like MLA, Historical Abstracts, Arts & Humanities Citation Index, Project Muse, JSTOR, FRANCIS,, Torrossa as well as open access journal collections such as Persée, RACO, SciELO, etc. are all included. However, it is not a substitute for powerful discipline-specific article databases but facilitates cross-database searching in ways that OskiCat and Melvyl cannot. Read more about the benefits and limitations of this new search tool here.

Travel Light with Ebooks

La invención literaria : Garcilaso, Góngora, Cervantes, Quevedo y Gracián / José María Pozuelo Yvancos Boccaccio e lo spettacolo della parola : il Decameron dalla scrittura alla scena : atti delle giornate di studio Boccaccio, un modello per l'Europa, il Decameron dalla scrittura alla scena (Bari, dicembre 2010-marzo 2011) Romain Gary, émile Ajar - Regards Croisés Méditerranée : mare nostrum pour les migrants?

While acquiring and establishing access to ebooks from southern Europe remains a challenge for American research libraries, the Berkeley Library has made some inroads this year with more Spanish books from Digitalia (625 titles to date), more Italian ebooksfrom Torrossa (2112 titles to date), and most recently 252 titles from France's largest publisher L'Harmattan. Hosted on their Harmathèque platform, these books are discoverable through OskiCat just like print books, and less seamlessly through most of the vendor's web sites:

  • For ebooks in Digitalia, do a title search in OskiCat for "Digitalia UCB access" or "Digitalia ebooks UCB access"
  • For ebooks in Torrossa, use "EIO - Italian Studies Basic Collection" or "Olschki E-books and Journals"
  • And for ebooks in L'Harmathèque, try  "Harmathèque eBooks"
