Fiction Catalog is the electronic version of Wilson's standard reference work of the same name. Fiction Catalog is a selective annotated list of fiction for adults that includes both established and contemporary works either written in or translated into English. Out-of-print titles are included, and analytical entries are made for composite works. The catalog is intended for collection development and for readers' guidance and reference service in public and undergraduate libraries.

The archive is a searchable database made up of items formerly included in the main catalog, but no longer current. Older printed copies of the Fiction Catalog are available in the IUB Libraries Research Collections at call number Z5916.F5
