Using the library

As mentioned on the right column, there are only a few libraries that really carry manga. Find your book at the NLB catalogue

To save more money on buying, let's recommend some manga to them. Some of the titles they do have now are rather strange! Makes me wonder who does the purchasing, or rather what frame of mind that person is/was in.

This is their reply after you submit your recommendation. I wonder what the "success rate" is like. But I did see a sign in one of the libraries that said they are expanding their comics section. But most of them were marvel/superhero type.

Thank you for your suggestion.

All the suggestions will be given consideration by the appropriate subject librarian. However, not all suggested materials could be purchased for the collection. Due to the large number of suggestions we receive, we may not be able to notify you about our decision regarding your request.

You can use our catalogue to check the availability of the title or further feedback or queries, please email to: helpdesk@nlb.gov.sg

And I got a reply to say they can't find the title. Don't they have Google? And I even included a wiki link! I had to refill the entire page again and cut and paste all the info again. Sigh.
