Read about the Pulp Magazine Collection

Dr. Brian Flota, Dr. Mark Peterson, and Julia Merkel wrote about the development of the JMU pulp magazine collection in the September 2016 College & Research Libraries News. “Pulp in the ivory tower: One university library’s development of a pulp magazine collection from scratch”

Please see Dr. Flota’s subject guide for more in-depth information about pulp magazine materials in both the JMU general and Special Collections:

Visit the Exhibit

Please stop by the JMU Special Collections Exhibit Area (outside of Carrier Room 203) for the exhibit “The Power of Pulps: From the Newsstand to the Academy.” Pulp covers, pop culture material inspired by the pulps, and a guide to the exhibit will be on display from October 3, 2016 through January 2017. Rose Library will host a smaller version through the month of October. The exhibit is free and open to the public during library hours.
