The Evans Library Collections
The Evans Library general collection houses just over 5,000 titles in science fiction and fantasy. Most are duplicates of the material in the Science Fiction and Fantasy Research Collection in Cushing, but some ten percent are uniquely held in Evans. A strong holding in history and criticism titles is the strength of the Evans segment of the overall Science Fiction and Fantasy Research Collection. Both fiction and nonfiction are actively acquired for the general collection.
The Evans Library general collection maintains subscriptions to a variety of magazines of interest to the science fiction and fantasy scholar, including Analog, Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine; F&SF, Locus, Cinefantastique and other titles. The microform collection houses all science fiction titles available for purchase in the mid-1980s, and a selection of fanzines on microfiche. Inventories of the microform magazines are planned.
Motion Pictures and Television
The Educational Media Services unit of the Evans Library houses a growing collection of science fiction and fantasy films and television episodes. The collection currently stands at 120 titles, not including 51 horror films, and is actively growing. Holdings of the collection may be viewed at the Educational Media Services web page Science Fiction and Fantasy Films.
