“When we were defining the Web Cultures collection, fan fiction and other kinds of fan works were identified as significant because fandom enacts so many of the key elements of folklore and vernacular culture. As a result, there are a range of fandom-focused sites that were selected for the collection. We were also interested in harvesting sites where communities had worked to synthesize, organize and collect examples of practice.”

Did you know that Fanlore is preserved by the US Library of Congress’ American Folklife Center? Their archive head tells us what their collection is about and why Fanlore is part of it: https://goo.gl/zRnERW
