Libraries in Science Fiction

In honor of National Library Week, here are a few links that deal with libraries and librarians in science fiction.

The first place to visit is James Gunn’s masterful Libraries in Science Fiction, arguably the most comprehensive review written at that time. Another worthy, more recent entry is located in the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction simply entitled Libraries that contains a multitude of links. Devil’s Advocate – Libraries in Science Fiction is also worth a perusal as well.

The portrayal of librarians is discussed in: Images of Librarians in Science Fiction and Fantasy: Including an Annotated List; A Long Overdue Nod to SciFi’s and Fantasy’s Best Librarians; and Representations of Libraries and Librarians in Popular Culture, Particularly Science Fiction and Fantasy.

We can end this entry with Libraries in fiction quiz – test your shelf knowledge.
