cataloging


Package from Project Bridget distro, now known as Autostop

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. 


40 Cats Drinking 40s photo from Ventricular Projects blog. For some reason I thought this was an appropriate Labor Day-themed image. 

This weekend I've added zines I bought or traded for at Pete's Mini Zine Fest and the Librarians and Archivists to Palestine thank you perk zine. 

This weekend is going to be hella ziney, even for a zine librarian:

Friday--8 hours of zine cataloging
Saturday--5 hours of tabling at Pete's Mini Zine Fest
Sunday--3 hours of assembling and packaging the Librarians and Archivists to Palestine thank you perk zine

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

Our International Zine Library Day event started off slow, but picked up speed around 2pm. 

Two weeks ago I was on my way to the Zine Librarians unConference in Iowa City, and last week I was on staycation, so it feels like I haven't cataloged a zine in FOREVER. 


This is what I was doing instead--still pretty fun!

And now for something completely different, I'm cataloging zines from Keight Bergmann's personal collection, plus a few from through the transom and the internet. 

Also, today is Insurance Awareness Day, apparently. Insert derisive comment on the health insurance industry and US healthcare here. 

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.
