The first time I experienced this book was in my early childhood when my parents read it to me. Back then, I enjoyed the colorful illustrations and interesting machines in the book. As I've grown older, I can appreciate the book on more levels and see that a powerful message can be delivered through a rhyming children's story. This book shows that a single piece of literature can be important in many different ways throughout a person's life.
The library staff has been great! I've had the opportunity to interact with many members of the full-time staff and have yet to have a bad experience. They are always understanding of the many aspects that can complicate a student employee's academic and work-study life. This has made the library a very comfortable and inviting place to work and study.
I firmly believe that graphic novels should be considered literature. The Sandman series, by Neil Gaiman, is one of the best examples I've found to support this point. It's chock full of literary and historical references, so there's a great payoff for the reader. Since Gaiman used different illustrators, inkers and letterers every issue, each story has a different feel. The fact that the series hangs together as a coherent narrative is a testament to Gaiman's narrative powers.
Working at Media Services has given me a great opportunity to interact with students and faculty that I would otherwise never see. I work with the media reserves, so I get to see what movies professors are using every semester, which gives me lots of great ideas about what to watch. Media Services is such a great resource, but I think it is underused by students-- come visit us on the 4th floor of humanities!
Art Spiegelman's extraordinary graphic novels detailing his family's experiences in the Holocaust is an extraordinary accomplishment. Through Maus, Spielgelman brought upon a new form of Holocaust remembrance that will never soon be forgotten.
The excellent management! Elvi, Janet, and Suphachai are wonderful bosses.
I read this book for the first time at Macalester, checked out from the Library, and it has become one of my all-time favorites. It made me want to travel
