  • "'The Barbara Slate Archive' occupies an estimated 35 cubic feet of material, which includes copies of all published works, scripts, layouts, editorial comments, drafts, revisions, original art, press clippings, ephemera, and born-digital materials archived on a 2 TB portable drive. It also includes many unpublished works, screenplays, and commissioned projects, and a pair of roller skates. ... Because of its interdisciplinarity, 'The Barbara Slate Archive' has material for researchers and students of comics and graphic novels, women's and gender studies, creative writing, book history, literature, publishing, zines, art process, character development, plot development. For business, entrepreneurship and economics students it shows in much detail the business of producing comics and books, merchandising and monetizing characters, adapting to different media. For film/TV and animation students it shows the process of transforming a proposal into a script and a storyboard, in the example of Ms. Liz, into the finished animated series on the TODAY show"--Https:// (viewed 2018-12-21)
