The world's largest public open-shelf collection of science fiction is the MITSFS Library. Our database of books can be searched here or examined in /afs/athena.mit.edu/activity/m/mitsfs/Public/datadex. (On MIT Athena, attach mitsfs; cd /mit/mitsfs/Public.) We have both fantasy and high-tech sf, including sf horror; our collection includes some foreign-language material and science-fiction related books as well.
Anyone can come and browse whenever the Library is open (see the schedule), and members can borrow from our circulating section. We can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. Membership is solely a matter of dues and is not restricted to MIT students. (But if you're not in the area, there's no point, though we welcome the donation.)
If you have any questions about donating books to our collection, please see our Donation FAQ.
Email to email@example.com is the best way to talk to us, though you can also call 617-258-5126 (aka MIT x8-5126). Send snailmail to
