BLOG POST IN PROGRESS.
The seventeen zines cataloged this week include three authored by twins, two by one sister, and one by both:
Skateboarders Tiffany & Nicole Morgan, from Outside magazine
In which I learn that long-time zine maker Sarah Rose is a professional balloon twister.

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.
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!
