  1. The Library doesn’t have a lot in the way of manga, we have a few Japanese animation titles (maybe 2 manga!) which you can find by typing manga, or japanese animation into the catalogue search box. If there are any titles you think we should have in our collection, you can always suggest them by using the ‘suggest new materials’ form on the Library website (no guarantees, but always happy to hear suggestions).
