The Fan Culture Preservation Project (FCPP) is a joint venture between the OTW and the Special Collections department at the University of Iowa to archive and preserve fanzines and other non-digital forms of fan culture.

Fans who have zines, fannish flyers, paper memorabilia, letterzines, newsletters, fannish correspondence, fan art, convention programs, convention badges, songvids - essentially anything fan made or fan produced - that they can’t keep anymore are encouraged to contact the OTW's Open Doors committee regarding the Fan Culture Preservation Project. Please.

  • The first major donation brokered by OTW is the Fanzine Archives, a collection of over 3,000 classic zines previously housed in Santa Barbara. The OTW was able to help the retiring archivist, Ming Wathne, save and protect this valuable collection.
