  1. Will there be more cartoons added to this site?

  2. How can I find out about editorial cartoons or collections at the Russell Library that are not on the web?

    The Russell Library currently holds two other editorial and political cartoon collections: The Walt Lardner Collection of Jimmy Carter Cartoons and the Gene Basset Editorial Cartoon Collection. Neither collection is available online because of copyright concerns, but can be viewed at the Library. For more information on the Baldowski Collection and other cartoon resources at the Russell Library, please contact Jill Severn, head of Access and Outreach.

    The Russell Library is open to the public and people are invited to use the collections. Please see the Russell Library's home page for more information on the Library and its holdings.

  3. How can I get copies of the cartoons on this site or cartoons in the Russell Library's collections but not on the Web?

    Contact the Russell Library using the research email address, russlib@uga.edu for information on obtaining reproductions.

  4. How do I get permission to use one of the cartoons in a publication or on a website?

    While the Baldowski cartoons created for The Atlanta Journal Constitution are licensed to the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies, University of Georgia Libraries by The Atlanta Journal Constitution. Before the cartoons may be published or otherwise reproduced, in whole or in part, in any publication (including dissertations to be microfilmed and distributed by University Microfilms), permission must be obtained from both the Russell Library as owner of the physical property and The Atlanta Journal Constitution as holder of the copyright. For access to The Atlanta Journal Constitution visit their website at www.ajc.com. Permission requests should be sent to Sheryl Vogt, Director of the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies.

  5. How do I cite cartoons from the database?

    When citing cartoons from the Clifford H. Baldowski Editorial Cartoons, please include all the following information. [Title of the cartoon], [Date of cartoon], editorial cartoon by Clifford H. Baldowski, Clifford H. Baldowski Editorial Cartoon Collection, Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies, University of Georgia Libraries, Athens, presented in the Digital Library of Georgia.
    When doing an actual footnote or bibliography, this information should conform to the manual of style being used for the research work. Citations may be shortened after the first reference.

  6. How do I print the cartoons?

    Printing depends upon your system, printer, and the type of software you have. Best results are usually obtained by using a laser printer and the "large" jpeg images available on the site. You can simply use the Print function of your web browser or save the image and print it from a graphics program of your choice. Please consult the Library's reproduction and use statement.

  7. I found a mistake. Who should I notify?

    Please send an e-mail to the Russell Library at russlib@uga.edu and let us know what the error is. (Please include the cartoon number if possible).

  8. How can I find out about cartoons on other web sites?

    Please check our Related Links page.

  9. How can I find out about cartoons in other libraries?

    The Cartoon Art Coalition site lists some of the major U.S. repositories involved in collecting cartoon art. Michigan State University's Cartoon Art Collection's page list also includes non-U.S. institutions with strong cartooning resources.

  10. I have some old original cartoons. Can you tell me what their value is? Would the Russell Library be interested in having them for its collection?
