I'm married to a first-time marathoner running New York on Sunday, so this cataloging report is dedicated to him.

This is the week I finish cataloging Keight Bergmann's donation. Thank you SO MUCH Keight!!!


That's Keight on the front/right wearing a blue scarf. Also pictured are Yumi Lee (back left), who donated her zines in 2006; Marissa Falco (in the cute hat), who donated her zine collection in 2009 and Laura Fisher, holding the bicycle (maybe we'll get her zines in 2015?).

Don't get me wrong--we don't take Columbus Day off at Barnard, nor do I want to honor Cristofero Colombo in any way. It's just a different thing to say than Zine Cataloging Report: 10/11/13. This will be a half day's worth of zine cataloging since I spent a few hours today at a radical archives working group meeting organized by Chitra Ganesh and Mariam Ghani

Last night the ABC No Rio cat, Cookiepuss left the building. One of her favorite places at No Rio was the zine library, where she would keep the zines awaiting processing warm and furry. This week's entry is dedicated to her.

Friday the 13th black cat because any excuse to post a photo of a cat. (But I'm not a complete librarian stereotype because I don't knit.)

Fridays are my dedicated cataloging days, but today I sneaked off to meet a colleague's new itty-bitty baby. That means I'll catch up Saturday and probably Sunday, too. I'll mostly be continuing to work my way through Keight's mighty collection donation.
