Shelves, before.

On April 8, 2016, Profs. Alan Lovegreen, Jason Ellis, and Laura Westengard began moving the core magazine component of the Science Fiction Collection into the City Tech Library Archives.

The City Tech Ursula C. Schwerin Library prepared approximately 400 linear feet of shelving space for the collection as shown to the left before the collection began to be moved from Alan and Jason’s offices where the books had been temporarily stored during this phase of the collection’s preparation.


Shelves, after.

After moving nearly all of the magazine component of the collection into the Archives, the shelves take on new life with Amazing Stories, Astounding, Asimov’s, the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, If, Galaxy, and much more!
