Slayage: The Online International Journal of Buffy Studies

Slayage: The Online International Journal of Buffy Studies As most instruction librarians know, Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a great TV show for teaching about information literacy. How many shows (especially ones that last for seven seasons) feature a librarian as a main player and show research as a regular component of real life? This online journal is for serious academics who are using Buffy for tenure and raises. There is some excellent stuff here I noticed as I browsed through eight back issues of the journal. It also has information on an upcoming Buffy conference in Nashville. I doubt I will get funding to go to that even if I can get a paper accepted. I was thinking of a title like, "And the Word Became Flesh: Dawn, Glory, and the Use of the Avatar on Buffy the Vampire Slayer." But I am probably just a Buffy scholar wannabe.
