In 2001, it was revised by Lorin Anderson, a former student of Bloom.

Zombies!

What do zombies and information literacy have in common?
They are both part of the fun in a unique new graphic novel called Library of the Living Dead!

“The library has just released an online 23-page library guide in graphic novel format called Library of the Living Dead that features students taking cover in the library from zombies run amok on campus, and the flight to safety becomes a point of departure for a blood-stained lesson, replete with decapitations, in the Dewey Decimal system and other library tools.” —Library Journal
