George Kelley Paperback & Pulp Fiction Collection

The George Kelley Paperback and Pulp Fiction Collection is comprised of well over 25,000 pulp fiction books and magazines. Dr. George Kelley donated the material to the University at Buffalo Libraries in 1994. The Collection has been enhanced by the large number of gifts of books and magazines from Dr. Thomas Shaw and Margarete Shaw. The origins of the collection date back to George Kelley's childhood.

The Collection has been cataloged and you can search the collection by using the Libraries' Catalog. The Collection is stored off-site. Please fill out a reference request form with the titles you would like to request at least 3 business days in advance of your visit. The Collection is noncirculating and must be used in the Special Collections Reading Room in 420 Capen Hall.
