Enthusiasm for science fiction has saturated popular culture. Yet what about the archival record? What are we doing to record a genre that has permeated popular culture for more than a century -- and particularly the records of those who create the worlds that fans love so much? Speakers discuss: Why document science fiction? What are our experiences with accessioning and processing science fiction collections? How are science fiction collections being used? How can we effectively promote our collections?
