How to Find Science Fiction in the Library Catalog
There is no Science Fiction section separate from regular fiction and no colorful stickers identifying science fiction books. Therefor you cannot find Science Fiction by browsing the shelves. Instead:
- Search on a known Author.
- Search on a known Title.
- Search on the topic Science Fiction.
- Use one of the many lists included in this LibGuide for ideas.
