OSU launches new cartoon database

Good catch from Tom Spurgeon. Ohio State University’s Bill Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum has launched a new database to search through a portion of their massive collection.

OSU’s Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum has opened a new database to make it easier to access a portion of one of the world’s largest collections, said Lucy Caswell, museum curator and professor.

“Even though we have between 60,000 and 70,000 records in this database, it really is the tip of the iceberg,” Caswell said.

More than 400,000 original cartoons exist in the collection.
