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

I thought cataloging this week was going to be messed up because of the government shutdown and the resultant shutdown of the Library of Congress resources to which I refer. But...it seems that the LoC web is back!

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.

We wanted to know how zine makers feel about our library making copies of their zines or portions of their zines for remote researchers and prison inmates, so we made a survey. If you make a zine now or have done so in the past, would you consider filling out the survey for us? It should take fewer than five minutes of your time. The survey will close on Wednesday, August 28th, 2013.

It's back to cataloging zines from Keight Bergmann's gift. Hello again, 1990s!
