Cataloging the Whedonverse: Potential Roles for Librarians in Online Fan Fiction
This exploratory research found that the fan fiction community is conflicted between a need for better accessibility and a need for community sovereignty. Issues such as the growing popularity of fan fiction online, the archival practices of the community, the urge to keep fan fiction “underground” in light of potential copyright battles are explored.
