Free Sci-Fi Buttons Available at the Library and Clough Commons

Whether you're a science fiction or fantasy buff, stop by the Library or Clough Commons to grab a free Sci-Fi Button to wear to Dragon-Con this week. 

The Georgia Tech Library's Science Fiction Collection committee designed and produced four different buttons based on popular items from the collection, which is one of the Institute's most unique resources for research and education. In 1998, GT literature professor Irving "Bud" Foote laid the foundation for the science fiction collection by donating his personal book and magazine collection to Georgia Tech Archives, which currently holds over 10,000 science fiction and fantasy novels, anthologies, and more than 1,000 periodical issues. American science fiction printed between 1950 and 1990 is the collection's strongest coverage area.

Most fiction items are held in Georgia Tech Archives; duplicate copies of these items (when available) can be found in the Library's general collection, along with a variety of secondary and reference works related to science fiction studies.

To get your free Sci-Fi button, visit the Library Services Desk or the Clough CORE Desk. For more information about buttons or the collection itself, email scifi
