Graphic novels of Japan, called manga, have established a strong foothold in American culture. This preliminary survey of 44 United States university libraries demonstrates that Japanese manga in translation are consistently collected at a lower rate than American graphic novels. This article was published in the JOURNAL OF ACADEMIC LIBRARIANSHIP (2010), 36:6, 511-517. [Elsevier]
