The Bud Foote Science Fiction Collection, housed in the Georgia Tech Library Archives, is one of Georgia Tech's most unique resources. It was founded in 1999 when Irving F. "Bud" Foote, professor emeritus in the School of Literature, Communication, and Culture at Georgia Tech, donated his personal science fiction collection to the Georgia Tech Library. Containing over 8,000 cataloged science fiction novels, anthologies, monographs, journals, and films, its items date as far back as the nineteenth century and are written in a variety of languages, including English, Danish, Russian, French, and Japanese. The collection boasts rare first edition works by the likes of H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, and Edgar Rice Burroughs, as well as by Georgia Tech's own Bud Foote.
