The Science Fiction and Fantasy Research Database is a freely available online resource designed to help students and researchers locate secondary sources for the study of the science fiction and fantasy and associated genres. These include: historical material; books; articles; news reports; interviews; film reviews; commentary; and fan writing. The database was originally compiled by Hal W. Hall, a librarian at Texas A & M University, and draws and expands upon the Science Fiction and Fantasy Reference Indexes of 1878-1985; 1985-1991; and 1992-1995.

Please note that the SFFRD is NOT a library catalog. The listing of a source in the database does not necessarily mean that Cushing Library has that source in its collections. Please check the TAMU Libraries Catalog ( for more information.
