BRITISH LIBRARY/COMICHAUS #TEAMUP

From October 1st – Creators and publishers in the UK can use the Comichaus database site to not only submit their digital comics to their app – but with one click they can also send a copy to the British Library for preservation

Comichaus has been working with the British Library to support Legal Deposit of UK independent digital comics. Legal Deposit requires publishers to provide a copy of every work that they publish in the UK to the British Library. It has existed in English law since 1662, and, since 2013, has also applied to digital publications.

It’s incredibly important as it means that the British Library’s collections reflect the diversity of experience and expression across the whole of the UK. That means comics, including independently published comics, are just as important and valued as other publications. The UK comic scene is diverse, energetic and influences other forms of writing and expression. UK comics should be preserved as part of the national collection, and available for readers and researchers now and in the future.

But, collecting independently published comics is a challenge. While the Library does receive comics from many independent creators, not all people who make and distribute their comics think of themselves as publishers, or that they should be submitting their work to the British Library, or know how to do this. Information about independently published comics is generally not available in the same way as for books with ISBNs, so it’s hard to know what is available to collect.

Over the past year, Comichaus has been working with the British Library to ensure that digital comics submitted to the Comichaus app can also be sent to the British Library (with the publisher’s consent) in fulfilment of Legal Deposit obligations. This helps the Library ensure that its collections reflect the diversity of UK independent comics, ensures that the comics will be preserved long-term, and means that they are available and discoverable in the Reading Rooms of the British Library and the five other UK Legal Deposit Libraries (the National Library of Scotland, National Library of Wales, Bodleian Library at Oxford University, Cambridge University Library and the Library of Trinity College Dublin).

Quote from Comichaus
“The Comichaus App is continuing to build, with more and more content from indie creators and publishers added each week. Readership is also increasing. We feel there is a great collaborative feel to this whole project and the family is getting stronger each day.

We believe the app is helping readers discover new comic books and we are committed to keep promoting the creators, publishers and books over the coming years.

With this in mind we are very proud to announce this team up with the British Library!”

What is the App?

The Comichaus App is an app that is dedicated to indie comics. For a subscription fee of £3 a month (£30 a year) you can:

* Get access to stream and discover all the indie comics in our catalogue

* Save as many of the comic books offline as your device storage will allow

* Search by title, creator, genre and publisher

* Discover more about creators

* Support creators – 50% of advert and subscription revenue will be split with creators based on how many times their books are read

Will it work on my device?

The Comichaus App will work on Apple/iOS devices listed here, and Android/Amazon handsets and tablets running android version 4.4 and above.

Why is it a Subscription fee AND Adverts?

We wanted to create a model that was beneficial to the creators/publishers and one that would also be self sustaining. The adverts on the app are non intrusive but will mean we can generate income to go back to the creators and publishers, whilst also covering the running costs of the app itself. Members can opt for the £5 a month ‘No Ads’ subscription if they wish

Anyone can contribute to the Comichaus database. Whether you want to add/amend data on your favourite mainstream books – or you are an indie creator/publisher wanting to add your own
