A RESOURCE FOR WRITERS, SCHOLARS & STUDENTS
The Clute Science Fiction Library at Telluride is an intimate register of the constant evolution of the weaving of science fiction into the larger world of fiction. It will aid research into the past, present and future of the genre – how it shapes and is shaped by the world as it changes, and how it serves as an engine of prophecy and advocacy. The library will celebrate the continued and increasing importance to researchers and others of an archive of physical books, even in the era of digitization.
The library, which is fully cataloged, is located at 216 West Colorado Avenue in Telluride, Colorado. The works are in the process of being shelved–currently the Institute has completed the process through the letter “E.” Cover scans for more than 10,000 titles in the library can already be found in the Picture Gallery of the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.
