USING THE ZINE COLLECTION

How can I access the zine collection?
Please check our access page.


Yes! Please see our donations page for details.
Can I borrow zines from the library?
Yes! In November 2007 we became the first academic library that we know of to circulate zines. You borrow them just like our other circulating materials. More on our find and borrow page.

Can the zines be loaned to other libraries?
Stacks zines are available via Interlibrary Loan. Please go through the normal ILL channels at your local library.

I am looking for a particular zine. Will it be in the catalog?
Many of the zines available are currently in CLIO, but some others have yet to be processed. When in doubt, you can always ask the Zine Librarian.

How will I find the zine I'm looking for on the shelf?
The zines are shelved on the zine bookcase, which is on the second floor of the library. The call numbers start with "ZINES" followed by a Cutter number, "An alphanumeric scheme ordinarily based on the author or main entry." (From the University of North Carolina's Serials Cataloging Graduate Manual - Glossary. Accessed October 20, 2006.)

Do you have a mailing list for programs, events, workshops and other zine stuff?
Yes! Sign up at http://muse.barnard.edu/sympa/info/zinelist.
Another way to keep in touch with us is by following us on Facebook, LiveJournal, MySpace, and Twitter.
