Today, I'm cataloging a bunch of zines that I ordered, a few that were hand-delivered, and when I'm done with them getting back to Keight's delightful donation.
Most every Friday (and sometimes Saturday) I spend 8-12 hours cataloging zines. It's more fun if I get to tell you about them, don't you think? This week, I'm still working my way through zines I bought or traded for at the Brooklyn Zine Fest and zines that came in the mail in the last month or so.

Here are some highlights from zines added to our library catalog (most of them donated by Keight Bergmann) this weekend:
Head over to Minneapolis Community & Technical College Library this Saturday, March 30th! The library is hosting "Publishing to the People," which is held in collaboration with the Minnesota Museum of American Art's exhibit "DIY Printing: Presses Not Required." They've got events going from 9-3, including zine cataloguing, zine making, button making, and a panel discussion with museum employees and librarians.
Hey there! Check out this great new project that I (Jordan) have been working on recently: As[I]Am is a soon-to-be-launched Asian American social justice website showcasing the work of artists and activists across the US. We have a Facebook page with our mission statement and a call for submissions out. Our first deadline is March 2nd for submissions to be featured with the launch! Digital zines are gladly accepted. Additionally, any zinesters that want to participate in email interviews for As[I]Am, shoot us an email! Please send submissions and other notes to firstname.lastname@example.org – more info and submission guidelines after the jump.
