Anime exhibit showcases Libraries’ collection

The Penn State University Libraries’ 2016-17 exhibit season begins with “Japanimation: Exploring Anime,” on display through Friday, Dec. 16, in the Pattee Library central entrance exhibit cases and adjacent Sidewater Commons, located on the first floor of Pattee Library. The exhibit, which highlights perspectives ranging from anime’s historical origins to scholarly analysis and pop culture impact, is free and open to the public and available for viewing during regular fall semester Pattee Library operating hours.

The exhibit, curated by Penn State Information Literacy Librarian and anime expert Glenn Masuchika, samples the library’s comprehensive collection of books and documentary films about anime. Masuchika will present a talk on anime from 2 to 3 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 29, in the Mann Assembly Room, 104 Paterno Library, University Park. Attendees should note that some content for the talk includes adult themes and grotesque imagery.
