Time Travel Fiction

Time Travel is a genre of science fiction. In a time travel work, a character or characters travel from one time to another. Or to many other times. Time travel novels have been written for over one hundred years. H.G. Wells' classic, The Time Machine, is the most well known time travel novel.

In Polaris the subject term is “Time travel -- Fiction.”

As a genre of fiction, the weeding guideline for Time Travel is X/2/MUSTIE. Weed based upon condition and use. The CREW Manual says:

“For most public libraries, circulation is the primary factor for weeding fiction. Discard works no longer in demand, especially second and third copies of past bestsellers. Retain works that are in demand and/or of high literary merit, but replace worn copies with new editions. Discard lesser works by classic authors if they are not circulating. Consider discarding all titles in a series if you are not able or willing to replace missing titles, especially if the books do not stand alone.”
