Manga at the Toronto Public Library – Part 2

May 25, 2006 at 11:55 pm 21 comments

Part 1 of this post talked about why I bothered to spend so many hours on this little pet project of mine (and why I decided to go ahead publish it) but the overwhelming reason was curiosity.  What could I borrow from the Toronto Public Library, how could I find it and where were they deciding to put different series within their collections?  It's a bit embarrassing to think about how much time I spent doing this, but what the heck.  It was sort of fun in a making-a-list kind of way.  :)  Here is what I did and what I found.

The Searches:

No searches were done from the front search box.  This is a general keyword type search, and pretty useless if you're looking for something specific.  All searches were done by clicking the "Search" tab and using the drop down menu on the "Basic" screen or were done from the "Advanced Search" screen.  The abbreviations in brackets are how each search is listed in the title list.

Graphic novels – advanced search – subject keywords – 1750 results – limited to remove Merrill Collection results – 882 results – 279 of these were manga titles (gn) 

Tokyopop – basic search – publisher keyword – 158 results (tpop)

Viz – basic search – publisher keyword – 254 results – included books and dvd's in results (viz)

Graphic Novels — Japan – basic search – subject begins with – 111 results – these also seemed to be included in the broader graphic novels search (gn-jp)

Dark Horse – basic search – publisher keyword – 349 results – 97 of these were manga titles (dh)

ADV – basic search – publisher keyword – 25 results – 4 were manga titles, most were dvds (adv)

Manga  – basic search – any keyword – 125 results – 32 of these were manga – picked up Dark Horse Manga as well (manga)

Other searchs:

Viz graphic novel – 103 results – series term clicked through from manga record – not saved or added to list because I generously assumed they would be included in the Viz as publisher search.
Graphic Novels — Korea – zero results – I found this subject in the catalogue in my home town.  I thought it would be worth a try but Toronto doesn't seem to distinguish between manwha and manga.  I didn't check all of them, but I don't remember there being any Korean graphic novels included in the Graphic Novels — Japan search.

The Oddities:

Examples of manga with no subjects:
Hellsing
Alice 19th (for volumes 4 and 6 only)
Ultra Maniac
Castle in the Sky
Tsubasa
xxxHolic

Most were found by publisher searches.  The Del Rey titles were completely missed (and found either by an author or title search) as I am unwilling to browse through results for a search on Del Rey as publisher.
Imadoki has no volume numbers, only names.
Alice 19th – there are two author entries for Yu Watase within the Alice 19th records.

Ultra Maniac –  two entries (vol. 1 and volume 1 as "other title"), only one for the author.  Also listed as (television program) despite being a manga.  Probably because the note says that it inspired the anime.

Tsubasa and xxxHolic – not found by searching Del Rey – one is listed with Clamp (artistic group) as author, the other Clamp.  One xxxHolic record lists Tsubasa as the translated title of the book (I emailed the library about this).  Othello and Wallflower were found as title searches.  These all listed Kodansha within their records so I tried it as a keyword search, but there were 1300 results – too many to sift through.

Some titles are listed more than once in the catalogue because of spelling variations within the records.  "Title volume xx" is given as a variant/alternate title while "Title vol. X" might be the main entry.

Removed from the List:

Any Pokemon titles – I didn't want to try to separate the manga from the chapter books and videos/dvds
NO Holdings – some of these were from the Merril collection, some were lost
Two art books kept on list on a whim

Reading the list:

Dragon Ball Z. Vol. 1-13
Toriyama, Akira, 1955-
Viz Communications, c1984.
Teen Graphic Books FICTION TOR
Graphic Books FICTION TOR
Children's Graphic Books FICTION TOR
(gn 1,12-13 ) (viz 1-13) (gn-jp vol 13)

The library holds volumes 1-13.
They are held in three different collections – Graphic Books, Teen Graphic Books and Children's Graphic Books
Volumes 1, 12 and 13 were in the "graphic novel" search results – volumes 1-13 were in the "viz" search results – volume 13 was in the "graphic novels – japan" search results.

V. Vol. Volume 1 One etc – records were emailed from the catalogue so abbreviations, numbers have not been changed.

Disclaimers: 

The searches were run on May 2nd, May 17th and May 22nd.  Records may have changed since then (ie manga on order will be catalogued and may then show up in different searches).  This isn't a list of all the manga in the TPL system, just the ones I could find.  WordPress also saw fit to remove much of the formatting from the list.  Apologies if any bunching of titles was missed/is unfixable.

    There are more updates. Way more updates.
    Maybe you should do a brand new post.

    Ex. Angel Cup, Death Note, more FMA?, more Bleach, more Wallflower, more DB and DBZ…

    PS. I’d be willing to sort through TPL and make a list of all manga, if you’d like. I have a lot of free time this summer. ^^

    Oh, headache! This post is only two months old! Basically what I was going to do was put stuff in the comments as they come up on the new book list every month, but TPL doesn’t put everything on those lists. Arg! How can you trust them then! There were only two new books in the July new books… If you want to post a new update, that would be cool if you’re bored.

    BTW, the July list has more anime on it than manga:

    Cowboy Bebop. Remix 2 (anime)
    Cowboy Bebop. Remix one (anime)
    Fullmetal alchemist. 6, Captured souls (anime)
    Imadoki! nowadays. Poppy (manga, which was already in their collection)
    Mobile suit Gundam seed. Volume 01-05 (anime)
    My-HiME. 1 (anime)
    One piece. Vol. 7, The crap-geezer (manga)
    Peacemaker Volume 1-4 complete collection
    R.O.D the TV. Disc 4-7 (anime)
    Samurai 7. 1 (anime)
    Samurai 7. 4 (anime) (I’m guessing they have more than these two volumes, but this is what showed up)
    Scrapped princess. II, Melancholy wagaon tracks (anime)

    Thanks for letting me know about Angel Cup, though. I was kind of interested in that one but didn’t want to buy it. Now I can borrow it! It looks like they got the seventh Fullmetal Alchemist volume now, too.

    I love you… ;_;

    They have Peacemaker volume 5.

    I DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT MY HIME OR COWBOY BEBOP OR GUNDAM OR SCRAPPED PRINCESS OR ROD.

    How do you get a hold of this stuff? D:

    I just look up ADV, Tokyopop, Viz and Del Rey under publishers.

    All I know is I squealed yesterday about them ordering the rest of Dragonball and Dragonball Z. I wanted to read it all a year ago and I downloaded it but scans aren’t the same.

    Have you read the Erica Sakurazawa books from the library? I enjoy them.

    PS. Also check out Sorcerors&Secretaries if you haven’t? I read a preview, it looks good.

    I actually own most of the Erica Sakurazawa books. There are a few others than what’s at the library. They weren’t bad, but I don’t think I bought them all.

    Around the middle of every month they put up their new book/dvd’s (I think it’s the new and hot or new and popular tab). I generally look through the new adult, teen, sci fi and kids books and the kids and adult dvd lists. They miss a lot but if I want more than that I check for titles.

    Does the library have Sorcerers and Secretaries? I’ll go check. I was going to read the Chibi Vampire manga you recommended at the store one day and got distracted by the defective cover (it was on “backwards” like the front was on the back) and never got around to reading it. :( It’s still on my list!

    Ok. Thank you. =)

    I really enjoyed the Erica Sakurazawa books they have at the library so far.

    As for Chibi Vampire, I didn’t… notice when I bought it. I just wanted it so badly I didn’t care.

    Hi how many Rave Master volumes are thier? can you tell me how much exact and which library locations and how many volumes

    Thanks,!!!

    Reply
  • 21. pajcat  |  October 6, 2010 at 10:37 pm

    The Toronto Public Library has 32 volumes of Rave Master. Generally the best way to get books isn’t to look up branches and travel around picking them up, though. If you go to the website and look up Rave Master (or any other manga title) you can put holds on the book with your library card. Then you have them delivered to whatever branch is closest to you. It usually takes a few days for them to come in.

    If you really do want to go pick it up yourself, if you look in the listing for each volume it will tell you what branch it is in and whether or not it is currently in the library.
