Honors Research trip to Liverpool, England
In June, Dr. Stephanie Brown and Katie Blocksidge, Interim Library Director at Ohio State Newark/COTC, accompanied three Ohio State Newark undergraduates to Liverpool, England: Nikki Cotton, Bryce Jones and Katie Waters. These students were conducting research in the Science Fiction collection in the University of Liverpool Library’s Special Collection & Archives; this collection is Europe’s largest catalogued collection of SF material. Andy Sawyer, Science Fiction Librarian at the University of Liverpool, provided an excellent overview of the collection and assisted the students with their research. While in Liverpool, Nikki, Bryce and Katie also attended Current Research in Speculative Fiction, a postgraduate conference held at the University of Liverpool.
