  • About the Author

Librarians and patrons alike will appreciate the wry humor arising from real library workplace experiences including interactions with college students, faculty, and bureaucracy.

Since 1982 the "Great Moments" cartoon has appeared in Map and Geospatial Information Round Table (MAGIRT) newsletter base line, published by the American Library Association. Hand drawing the cartoon for 16 years, Jim Coombs switched to Adobe Illustrator and color production in 2008 when base line went digital.
