A Virtual Visit to The Billy Ireland Library & Museum

As the Columbus Dispatch says:

For those who haven’t set foot in the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum,
now is not the time.

But during the COVID-19 closure of the Ohio State University facility, thousands of the cartoons, comics, drawings and other materials in its collection – the largest of its kind in the world – can be seen online.

“Our collection as a whole has over 3 million pieces,” said Caitlin McGurk, associate curator and OSU assistant professor. “Almost everything that we have other than materials in our backlog has some kind of visual representation or a digitized version.”

This page is a good place to start exploring The Billy Ireland online.
