One SF/F Research Wiki To Rule Them All…

I’m a member of the Science Fiction Collections Consortium. That’s one of those old-fashioned email listservs you may have heard about, where we communicate with one another about who has what, who’s getting what, and who may wish to be in touch with whom. 🙂 We offer each other duplicates, occasionally commiserate about lack of space, and work together as best we can to coordinate our collecting and curating of science fiction and fantasy literature for the ages.

Now we have something new! We have pooled our time and collection lists for one-stop shopping for author papers. If you want to know who holds what, BEHOLD: THE SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY SPECIAL COLLECTIONS WIKI.

Elspeth Healey did much of the work to physically set it up, and it is being slowly populated by a whole passel of curators! Hal Hall has graciously shared his AboutSF spreadsheet of collections with us, and the wiki will integrate that info, and help us to keep it up to date!

We like to share! Go check it out, and find out what you need to know. 🙂 (You’re welcome).
