Caitlin McGurk Receives Full-Time Contract With OSU's Billy Ireland

imageVisiting curator Caitlin McGurk at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum at Ohio State University has accepted a contract with the institution, McGurk noted on her tumblr site Friday afternoon. McGurk has master's degree in library and information science from The Palmer School. She was previously the librarian at the Center For Cartoon Studies and worked with both Marvel Comics and the Butler Rare Books Library at Columbia University.

Billy Ireland moves into a massive new facility at the university in the Fall of 2013. McGurk has spearheaded the Dylan Williams Collection announced earlier this year, and has quickly become a key, public voice for the institution via its blog and by attending comics shows on the museum's behalf.
