Science Fiction Collection
Housed in the EPS Library in the casual reading space on Level 2, the collection includes about 300 items.
"Imagination is more important than knowledge."
~ Albert Einstein
Not so long ago, in a garage sale not so far away, a certain unassuming librarian discovered amongst the broken swing-ball sets and discarded Solid Gold LPs piles and piles of preloved science-fiction novels – also known as "sci-fi" or simply "SF" to aficionados.
After a number of requests over the years for more recreational reading, the University of Canterbury Library is very pleased and proud to bring to you – through the generosity of donors – this small but exclusive collection of science-fiction novels.
The novels have attracted attention from students and staff alike – both sci-fi fans and those with only a passing interest. Some have also seen it as an opportunity to finally find a caring home for their own well-thumbed and much-loved treasures.
