Who are all those people smiling down from the walls of the Cubberley Education Library's reading room?  The tags on the portraits are difficult if not impossible to read.  They are the deans of the Graduate School of Education, starting with Ellwood P. Cubberley and ending with Deborah Stipek.  There is a new page on the library's website which tells you more, including the names that go with each and links to information about them and where to find their papers.

The use of graphic novels and their techniques is becoming increasingly popular in education where a variety of new literacies are supplementing the importance of the written word.  Cubberley Library has books on this subject and a variety of graphic novels which are featured in a new guide to Graphic novels and education.  Graphic novels are being used in a number of subject areas including history with works such as Abina and the important men: a graphic history which tells the story of an African woman who sought to use the courts to free herself from slavery.
