Matthew Murray is a Visiting Library Fellow at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas University Libraries. When he’s not trying to read all of the comics ever Matthew spends his time recording and editing the Book Club for Masochists readers’ advisory podcast, editing for the graphic novel review site No Flying No Tights, helping to run the Zine Pavilion at ALA, making the fiction anthology zine Two-Fisted Library Stories, and playing with Raspberry Pi computers and maker/technology stuff in general. He’s also willing to talk about why libraries are bad at cataloguing graphic novels for basically forever (or until they get better at it).
