This collection, which was established in 2004 by Professor Roger C. Schlobin in honor of his parents, James H. and Virginia C. Schlobin, acquires published science fiction and fantasy literature and materials related to the study of these genres. The collection reflects the current popularity of science fiction, fantasy and horror literature as manifested by the Harry Potter/J.K. Rowling phenomena. The Schlobin Collection presently consists of more than 2,500 printed volumes. It grows through gifts, purchases and by transfers from the existing Joyner Library Fantasy Literature Collection. Readers can gain access to the printed materials in this collection through the Joyner Library online catalog. Online researchers may also obtain a finding aid to the Schlobin Papers by consulting the East Carolina Manuscript Collection Guides.
