Government comic book archive

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln library has a digital archive of comics published by the U.S. government, dating back to the 1940s. The tiny thumbnails and pdfs are fairly annoying.  And by fairly, I mean, enough that I don’t imagine I’ll be digging deep into this beyond the superficiality coolness factor.   

Hopefully, the recently created Dark Horse comic archive at Portland State University will digitize their collection and improve upon University of Nebraska’s crummy UI.  [via Super Punch]

    Ouch, James! I realize the UNL interface isn't perfect, but it's searchable, and the thumbnails provide the cover and information to help decide whether you want to download the pdf version. The pdfs are large because of the digitization/archival standards of migrating materials. I'm open to suggestions for improving the collection 🙂
