About "Chaos or Collection?: Graphic novels are some of the most exciting and varied resources that school librarians have on their shelves, and they are growing ever more popular with all kinds of readers. But knowing how to select, catalogue, classify and shelve them so your library users can find them can be challenging.

Building on the research that she conducted for her Masters degree, this how-to guide is very readable and full of common sense suggestions – there are lessons here for all of us.
