Lois McMaster Bujold Papers have now joined the NIU collections

ZOMG WE GOT THE LOIS MCMASTER BUJOLD PAPERS!!! *kermit flail*

NIU Today has run the initial story. There will be an official press release going out to the usual SF/F news sites  in the next few days as well.

But, I must say, I am SO DEEPLY PLEASED AND PROUD that Lois elected to place her papers at NIU. They are a great cornerstone to the SFWA Collection. 🙂

I’m looking forward to cleaning out the rest of her basement in the near future. YAY!

For those who are library professionals, this was a relationship that developed over basically an 8 year period, mostly within the context of my “embedded curator” article in RBM. In case you were wondering.
