To help educators and librarians select materials to fit into their Common Core Standards curricula, Diamond Book Distributors have created the Diamond Graphic Novel Common Core List. Arranged by grade level, the Diamond Graphic Novel Common Core List offers 98 graphic novels from our publishers that will fit into a Common Core curriculum, along with resources including Library Classifications, Subject Headings, and Core Standards which apply to each book. The list is intended both as an aide to educators and librarians and to show that Diamond supports the Common Core Standards as an effective tool to prepare students for the challenges in college and the workforce.
Graphic Classics publisher Eureka Productions has also partnered with Overdrive and Comics Plus: Library Edition to make Graphic Classics digital editions available to libraries across North America and around the world. Among the library systems which have already started carrying digital editions of Graphic Classics are the Boston Public Library, Seattle Public Library, and the Dayton Metro Library.
Library users can borrow digital editions of Graphic Classics from their local library system for reading on smart phones, tablets, and computers. Digital editions are also available to consumers through the ComicsPlus and Ave Comics apps. Check with your local Library for Graphic Classics digital editions. CP
